One of the Nigeria Professional Football League’s (NPFL) most talked about transfers in this window has been the departure of Ifeanyi Anaemena from Enyimba to join Rivers United.
The 28-year-old centre-back was a key man for the People’s Elephant and spent six years with the Aba-based club.
However, 2020 has seen him move onto the next stage of his career, as he heads to Port Harcourt to join Rivers United, who were placed second on the NPFL log for the curtailed 2019-20 season, and will represent Nigeria in the next CAF Champions League.
The Super Eagles defender took to Facebook earlier this week to express his appreciation to Enyimba, thanking them for the memories he made while wearing their famous blue strip.
“As you all might have heard in the news, my very successful six years sojourn to Aba, home of the People’s Elephant is over,” Anaemena wrote, as quoted by the Daily Trust.
“I have agreed to a move to our neighbours Rivers United after a glorious time with Enyimba.
“I leave the club without any form of hatred or bitterness and I must thank you for making sure all my entitlements were never denied me. I appreciate that.
“I have started another chapter of my life of which I remain hopeful of more successes.
“Our paths will surely cross more in the future and all I wish you all is the best and nothing but the best.”
