The General Manager of Rivers United Okey Kpaluchu has said he expects their next opponent in the champions league to be very tough.
The ‘Pride of Rivers’ set up a mouth-watering clash against the defending champions Wydad Casablanca of Morocco after they edged Watanga FC of Liberia 3-1 on aggregate.
The manager said they are expecting a very tough game but assured Nigerians and the Rivers State government that they will reach the money spinning group stage of the Caf Champions League this term.
” It’s going to be a very tough clash against the defending champions, but I want to assure Rivers people and Nigerians that Rivers United have got the quality, support, and backing to qualify into the group stage of the competition.
The boys will work hard and every hand must be on deck this time to get into the group stage”, he told the club media.
Rivers United will host Wydad Casablanca in the first leg of the next round at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium on October 9, 2022, and will travel for the reverse fixture a week later in Casablanca far away in Morroco.
