Rivers Angels have dismissed reports claiming that Super Falcons duo Tochukwu Oluehi and Evelyn Nwabuoku have joined Spanish Reto Iberdola club Pozoalbense.
The club announced this in a statement released on their Twitter handle on Thursday.
Reports on Wednesday suggested that Pozoalbense had signed deals with the Falcons stars, however, Rivers United have denied it, describing the reports as misleading and inaccurate.
“This is to inform the general public that news making the rounds about two of our players; Evelyn Nwabuoku and Tochukwu Oluehi signing for a Spanish Reto Iberdrola club Pozoalbense is misleading and inaccurate,” the statement read.
“As of Thursday July 9, 2020, Nwabuoku and Oluehi remain bonafide players of Rivers Angels FC with existing contracts with us.
“Neither the said club nor its representatives have contacted anyone from here and hearing that they have announced the signing of our players is highly disrespectful and unethical.
“If and when both players secure any deals from teams in Europe, Rivers Angels FC will most definitely communicate it to the world via our various platforms but for now, neither has signed anything with anyone.
“We urge everyone to take note of this statement intended to set things right as they should be.”
Oluehi made an appearance for Bobruichanka Bobruisk in the 2013–14 UEFA Women’s Champions League while Nwabuoku played for Bayelsa Queens and Rivers Angels before moving to BIIK Kazygurt of the Kazakhstani women’s football championship in 2015.
