Ishaq Rafiu Kayode Remains Rivers United Player – Management
The attention of the Management of Rivers United football club of Port Harcourt has been drawn to a fictitious report being circulated in a section of the social media suggesting that our player Ishaq Rafiu Kayode has left the club.
Such report is completely false and a product of the imagination of mischief makers with the intent of misleading the unsuspecting members of the public.
Ishaq Rafiu Kayode is still a bonafide player of Rivers United FC as his contract with the team is still valid and as such any purported transfer without the knowledge and consent of Rivers United FC will only be a breach of contract.
As a club, we are not aware of any such purported transfer as the player only absconded from the club and this position has been made known to FIFA thus any acquisition of the player without our consent is null and void.
It is important to also note that Rivers United FC remain the only club that can release the said player to any other club when the proper things are done.
