Rivers United Goalkeeper Out For 2 Weeks, As Striker Returns
It is mixed fortunes for Nigeria Professional Football League side, Rivers United as far as the injury situation of their players are concerned.
The club via a statement sent to Bounce Sports stated that their veteran goalkeeper Sunday Rotimi, who suffered a hamstring injury in their CAF Confederation Cup game against KCCA in Kampala, Uganda, on June 3 will be out for two weeks.
“Rotimi has a hamstring injury and will be out for two weeks.
“He has been placed on medication to stop the pain and he has already commenced stretching exercises,” Dr. Chukwuemeka Agi, the head of Rivers United medical department explained.
It is however not all bad news for the Garden City team, as their striker Guy Keumian has returned to action after spending two weeks on the side lines.
The attacker suffered a contusion of his right foot during a CAF Confederation Cup game against Moroccan club FUS Rabat in Port Harcourt.
He has now resumed full training and is available for the selection for our club’s domestic and continental matches.
Also, midfielder Obomate Frederick, who failed to complete Rivers United’s penultimate Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) game against Niger Tornadoes in Lokoja, is now certified fit to return to action.
