Another Star Player Paul Acquah Dumps Rivers United, Terminates Contract Immediately

Former champions of the Nigerian Premier League (NPFL), Rivers United, have suffered another blow with the departure of star forward Paul Acquah.Another Star Player Paul Acquah Dumps Rivers United, Terminates Contract Immediately

Footballrover understands that the 28-year-old Ghanaian has terminated his contract with the club and signed a six-month deal with Libyan outfit Anwar FC.

Acquah’s tenure with Rivers United was marked by flashes of brilliance, most importantly his four-goal haul against DC Motema Pembe in the CAF Confederation Cup last season.

The attacking midfielder, often deployed as a right winger by coach Stanley Eguma, scored the lone goal in the away leg in Luanda before completing his dominance with a hat-trick in the 3-0 home victory.

Despite his heroics on the continental stage, Acquah had found playing time limited in recent months.

This, coupled with a desire for new challenges, appears to have prompted his decision to move on.

His departure follows that of Ossy Martin, who left the club just four months after joining, adding to the growing list of departures from the Port Harcourt outfit.

Acquah, who joined the Pride of Rivers in April 2021, previously played for Wazito FC, Star Madrid FC, Hearts of Oak, and Kintampo FC in his native Ghana.

While his exit is a blow to Rivers United’s depth, it also presents an opportunity for other players to step up and fill the void.
