Nigeria’s legendary goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama has finally come out to speak about the confrontation between him and head coach, Sunday Oliseh which saw him expelled from the camp before the intervention of the NFF.
Enyeama had earlier asked for permission to arrive the camp late as he attended the funeral of his late mother who had died last month, her death caused Enyeama to miss Nigeria’s AFCON qualifier against Tanzania. According to reports, Enyeama had attempted to apologize over dinner but was shouted down by Oliseh and tempers flared before Oliseh had the Lille shot stopper kicked out of the hotel by security after the former Enyimba goalkeeper had attempted to question OIiseh’s decision to strip him of the captain’s armband and hand it to Ahmed Musa.
Enyeama finally spoke out with an Instagram post where he was said “After 13 years on national service, having this smiles on my face and this passion in my heart,” Enyeama wrote on Instagram. “through the billows, the waves of the ocean, the tears of defeat, the sound of rejoicing from victory chants. Now the thought of being stripped naked and security agents throwing me out breaks me completely.
I will take anything but not insult to my dead mother.”
Enyeama definitely took that last part very seriously, The NFF has since intervained and Eneyeama was ordered to remain in camp but all cannot be well in Belgium as the Super eagles prepare for their next set of matches.
