    Rivers United about to be relegated,he will play them out of position and bench his best players

    • Appreciate him for taken up another job immediately instead of seating his ass arround and waiting for NT job like others. He will definitely come back good for him.

      Rivers will not be relegated, was that how he relegated Enyimba? Some gullible fans can always miss the point that Finidi is average but not bad. Remo stars will win the league this coming season and Rangers will be second. Next season I’m tipping BLA to cause an upset like Leicester.
