Nzube Anaezemba (right) in action for Rivers United vs El Kanemi

Rivers United midfielder Nzube Anaezembe is to be sanctioned after he refused to be part of the team for a rescheduled NPFL match at Kano Pillars.

After Rivers United lost 2-1 at Enugu Rangers on Monday morning, coach Stanley Eguma called up Anaezemba to come and join the team in Enugu for the trip to Kano.

But a shocked Eguma received an SMS from the former Enyimba stars saying he will not honour his coach’s instruction.

Anaezemba, it was further gathered, has for some time been left out of the Rivers United squad.

A visibly worried Eguma told SCORENigeria: “This is very unprofessional conduct.  We cannot allow this to continue.

“Nzube is not in this alone and I have to recommend to the management for the other players to be sanctioned”.

Eguma did not disclose the names of the other players facing disciplinary sanctions.

“There are three or four of them”, he said tacitly.
