'My Worst Game Last Season Was In Akure'

First-choice goalkeeper of Warri Wolves, Tejiri Rhioghene, has picked last season’s game in Akure against Sunshine Stars in the 2009/2010 campaign as his worst outing.
The goalkeeper was second-choice at the Warri-based club before the untimely death of Orobosa Adun during a training session at the Oleh Township Stadium on June 2.
But Rhioghene told that his first match of taking the up the position of first-choice at the club ended up with him conceding three goals to his own dismay.
The goalkeeper also blamed centre referee for the outcome of last season’s game against Sunshine Stars in Akure.
“My first match for Warri Wolves after the death of Orobosa was the one against Sunshine Stars in Akure. We lost that match by 1-3 but I was disappointed by that result because I was expecting to do well for my club. But the referee also did not make it an easy game for me because he was very biased in his officiating and may be it was because Sunshine Stars were playing at home,” he said.
With Warri Wolves having been announced as Nigeria’s representative in next year’s edition of the CAF Confederation Cup, Rhioghene is optimistic that the club is capable of winning the Premier League title next season.
Rhioghene, who was born in Warri, is also confident that the club can add the Federation Cup formerly known as the FA Cup to its target of trophies in the coming season.
“Warri Wolves can win the Premier League, the FA Cup and even the Confederation Cup. We have the players that are capable of doing that next season, but we will wait and see what happens,” he said.
