Enugu - Rivers United coach Stanley Eguma has lamented a
massive 4-0 loss to Enugu Rangers in a Nigeria Premier League played on Sunday.
A shell-shocked Eguma praised Rangers for their win but
promised that his charges would pick themselves up from the set-back and
“We have never lost like that (in our history) but then,
this is football where anything can happen.
“We will take the defeat in good faith and go back to work
harder to come back stronger,” he said.
Rangers coach Imama Amapakabo said though he knew the game
was gonna be easy, but was not expecting a huge scoreline.

“I understand Rivers United very well and I am quite happy
with the win.
“I told my players (before kick-off) this was going to be
one of the easiest games we will play this season.
“To be honest, I did not know we would win by this margin
but we will gladly accept it as it was deserved,” he said.
Rangers are now top of the NPFL standings with 54 points
from 32 matches, one point more than United, who drop to second having played
the same number of matches as the ‘Flying Antelopes’.
News24 had reported that Eguma said his side’s 2-0 win over
Plateau United was because they were better than their opponent.
