Frederick Obomate
Obomate Frederick is back to action after making a complete recovery from an injury that kept him out of competitive football for five months.
United midfield general, Obomate, wowed plenty with his uncompromising, all action style which saw him scoop the award as the NPFL’s best player in the opening month of the last campaign.
The midfielder played an important role in helping United finish as runners up behind eventual champions, Enugu Rangers in last season’s NPFL title race.
His performances waned noticeably towards the close of last season as a result of the injury he sustained and he had to go under the knife.
After making a complete recovery, Obomate made his first appearance of the season for United in the NPFL on Sunday, coming on as a second half substitute as the Pride of Rivers put champions, Enugu Rangers to the sword, 1-0 in Port Harcourt .
“I felt very happy making a return to the team. I felt very excited and believe I am the luckiest person on earth. “The severity of the injury made me think at some point that it was all over for me as a professional footballer.

This injury occurred between late October and early December, 2016. “He was on POP for close to two months before rehabilitation commenced.
“Some players never return from such kinds of injuries because the incomplete fracture becomes complete because of overuse. “However, in his own case, it healed properly and completely.
“I must commend the sponsor of the team, the Rivers State Government via the Sports Ministry for consistently making the welfare of players, health inclusive, top priority by responding to our call in this case. “Obomate is now out of the woods and is now able to assist the team,” Dr Agi the Team Doctor of Rivers United concluded.
