Rivers United’s Technical Manager, Stanley Eguma, has resumed for intensive course on modern coaching methodology in Serbia.
The experienced trainer is hugely successful, having won the Nigeria Professional Football and Federation Cup titles in the past.
Eguma was also part of Enyimba’s technical crew that led the ‘People’s Elephant’ to Caf Champions League success for the first time in 2003.
His winning mentality has been transferred to his current employers, Rivers United, a side he has steered to Caf Champions League qualification and the NPFL Super 4 title, less than 10 months after the club was born.
Eguma, whose busy summer first took him to Spain for a similar exercise, sees his current project in Serbia as the icing on the cake of an already impressive coaching career.
Eguma told the club’s official website: “I am currently on the second phase of my intensive coaching programme in Europe which commenced in Spain.
“I have learned a lot in these last two weeks in the areas of tactics, psychology and managing crisis situations around a football club.
“Players of Rivers United have also benefitted (from this project) as they were exposed to state-of-the art facilities during their pre-season preparations in Spain.
“Now, we must strive to justify this investment on the football club by delivering on the pitch.”
Rivers United will represent Nigeria in the 2017 Caf Champions League.
