EXCLUSIVE: I can’t wait to put one past Rivers United – Aremu Afeez
Akwa United midfielder Afeez Aremu is looking forward to today’s Nigeria Professional Football League week two clash against Rivers United with great enthusiasm.
The versatile midfielder who joined Akwa United from Rivers United told sportlineng.com that he has an unsettled score with his former employers and he just couldn’t wait to put one on his former club.
Afeez Aremu whose Akwa United side lost to Nigeria Professional Football League newcomers ABS FC in Ilorin on match day one said they never underrated the Ilorin based club and that the 3-1 defeat is beyond explanations.
“I really can’t explain what happened in our first league match against ABS FC, but I know in football there are three possible outcomes; either you lose, win or draw, it is a pity we lost.
“We never underatted them, we knew they were ones in the Nigeria Professional Football League before they were relegated back to Nigeria National League. The outcome of the match is what football is all about,” he said.
