Rivers United coach Stanley Eguma has said his team are scheduled to play friendlies against Malaga and Villarreal during a training tour of Spain.
“We will play Malaga and Villarreal,” said Eguma shortly after the Nigeria league runners-up landed in Madrid.
The Rivers United delegation departed Nigeria Monday night and are in Spain for 10 days.
The trip to Spain was part of the promises Rivers United Governor and Real Madrid fan Nyesom Wike made to the team after they finished behind Rangers this past season.
At the weekend, they won the pre-season NPFL Super 4 tournament in Enugu ahead of champions Rangers.
Both teams will represent Nigeria in next year’s CAF Champions League.
