In the early hours of the morning, as the nation slumbered, the Pride of Rivers roared to life with the unveiling of their exciting new signings.
The 2023/24 season is fast approaching, and Rivers United FC is gearing up for a triumphant run in the CAF Confederations Cup.
Taking to their official Twitter handle, the club announced the acquisition of four talented players, raising the expectations of their passionate fan base. Among the signings are two attacking powerhouses and two solid defenders, each expected to add depth and prowess to the team’s lineup.
Leading the attacking charge is Kouassi Bernard, a prolific goal-scorer fresh from his stint with TS Galaxy. His lightning-fast footwork and eye for the net are set to ignite the club’s offensive capabilities, providing the much-needed cutting edge in crucial matches.
In the defensive ranks, Rivers United FC secured the services of John Uche, a seasoned veteran who honed his craft at Enugu Rangers. His experience and tactical acumen are anticipated to bolster the backline, making it formidable and resilient in the face of any challenge.
Complementing Uche is centre-back Ebedebiri Endurance, renowned for his commanding presence and aerial prowess. With previous experience at Bayelsa United, he is set to fortify the team’s defence and thwart even the most formidable opponents.
Completing the quartet of signings is Deputy Echeta, a versatile and tenacious attacker arriving from Bendel Insurance. His ability to adapt to various attacking positions will provide Coach Stanley Eguma with tactical flexibility and depth in the squad.
As the CAF Confederations Cup looms on the horizon, Rivers United FC’s supporters eagerly await the synergy these new signings will bring to the team.
