The Pride of Rivers captain has appealed to the state governor to help clear the outstanding fees before the upcoming season starts

Rayon Sports crashed out of the Caf Confederation Cup after failing to break down Rivers United at Juventus at Stade Régional Nyamirambo in a goalless draw which confirmed a 2-0 aggregate play-off defeat.

After surrendering a three-goal advantage against El  Merrikh to get bounced out of the Caf Champions League, Stanley Eguma’s men learnt their lessons as they held their nerves to prevent their hosts from scoring.

With this result, the Port Harcourt based outfit joins TP Mazembe, CS Sfaxien, Zesco United, FUS Rabat, Smouha, Recreativo do Libolo, MC Alger and MC Mounana for the group phase.

Others are Horoya, Platinum Stars, SuperSport United, Al-Hilal Al-Ubayyid, Mbabane Swallows, Club Africain and KCCA.

Rivers United are seeded in Pot two for the draw billed for Wednesday at the Caf headquarters in Cairo, Egypt.

The teams will be zoned into four groups of four. In the group stage, each group is played on a home-and-away round-robin basis. The winners and runners-up of each group advance to the quarter-finals of the knockout stage.
