General manager of Nigeria Professional Football League side Rivers united Dr. Okey Kpalukwu has stated that the Port Harcourt based side are currently waiting to have the League Management Company of Nigeria ratify the team’s second-place finish for the 2019/2020 NPFL season.
Kpalukwu said this in a chat with brila.net amidst talk of uncertainty on the position of teams after the league was abruptly ended due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the adoption of the Point Per game system as a season-ending mechanism.
He added that the PPG system placed his team above Enyimba on goal difference after both teams were tied on point using the PPG and that this will be further clarified when LMC eventually comes up with the authentic table that will confirm Rivers united as the second-placed team.
“When you look at the league at match day 25 Rivers united actually finished second. When you use the PPG you will also discover that Rivers united finished second with the PPG so I think it’s something that is meritorious. I know that if you apply the PPG with all fairness to the two teams you will see Rivers united finishing second. We are waiting for the League Management company to come up with the authentic table.”
