Technical manager of Rivers United Stanley Eguma has been suspended by the club according to a press release made available to Owngoalnigeria.com.
Eguma was suspended for reporting 18 minutes after kickoff to the venue of their Wednesday Nigeria Professional League game against Plateau United which ended 0-0.
The coach was made aware of the club decision shortly after the game which further compounded their aspirations of getting their season back on track following a run of poor form.
His suspension is for just a game, which means he will not be part of the team for their weekend game against Gombe United in Gombe, according to the release from the management of the team.
Currently the longest serving coach at a club in the Nigeria Professional Football League, his team were dumped out of the CAF Champions League on a 4-3 aggregate loss after losing 4-0 in Sudan to Al-Merriekh.
