Cardiff was the preferred city.

Rivers State governor Nyesom Wike was spotted on Saturday June 4, where it was believed he went to physically drum support for Real Madrid against Juventus in the UEFA Champions League final.

On the same Saturday, Rivers United had a CAF Confederation Cup game against KCCA in Kampala, Uganda.

A Nigerian has posted photo of Wike inside the Cardiff stadium on Facebook, fully kitted in Real Madrid dress.

Real Madrid defeated Juventus 4-1 in the final, thanks to Wike’s presence, and Rivers United lost 2-1 to KCCA, did I hear you say no thanks to Wike’s absence?
