Wikki Tourists Star, Obaje : Our Coach Is A Barcelona FanRivers United return to action on Wednesday after their stunning 1-0 away success over Warri Wolves on match day 15 of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).

A big win over the Tourists in Port Harcourt could see sixth-placed United go top of the NPFL standings (if other results go their way) for the first time this season.

It seems more of a possibility rather than wishful thinking as all five sides above United on the NPFL log navigate banana-skin road trips on match day 16.

However, claiming the scalp of the visitors will be no easy feat.

In head coach, Abdul Maikaba, Wikki Tourists can boast of a purist, a lover of aesthetic football, whose side play the positive way.

A well-known FC Barcelona fan, Maikaba has instilled the principle of possession based football in his side.

“Our coach (Maikaba) is an FC Barcelona fan. He insists that we keep the ball on the ground and pass it from the back.

“He hates long passes with a passion and wants us to have more possession than our opponents irrespective of where we play,” Tourist striker, Godwin Obaje said to Rivers United Media.

Maikaba has the individuals blessed with the talents to play a possession-based game.

In Emeka Nwabulu, Waziri Christopher, Harrison Madu, Peter Ambrose, Guda Mohammed and striker, Obaje, Maikaba has a solid core of a talented team.
