Following his abrupt exit from the Super Eagles, Thursday, Nigerian International football goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama is in talks with top officials of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), reportedly to return to the Eagles camp in Belgium.
According to inside sources, there are plans for Enyeama to return to the Super Eagles camp and join the team for training ahead of Sunday’s friendly with Cameroon.
A photo shared by Nigeria’s top blogger, Linda Ikeja shows Enyeama with top officials of the NFF led by its President, Amaju Pinnick after the meeting on Saturday, October 10, 2015 in Belgium. Pinnick is in Belgium with two vice presidents of the NFF, Seyi Akinwunmi and Shehu Dikko.
Vincent Enyeama has taken to social media platform, Instagram to explain why he left Nigeria’s national team, the Super Eagles this week. He said he took that decision to preserve the team’s unity.
Following a row with new Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, the erstwhile captain and goalkeeper of the Eagles announced his retirement from the national team on Thursday. This announcement followed a confrontation with Oliseh over being stripped, unceremoniously, of the captainship of the Eagles.
Enyeama went on to grant an interview to Galaxy TV where he revealed details of what happened to him at the Eagles camp in Belgium.
Friday, Sunday Oliseh responded to the allegations placed against him by Enyeama saying that the goalie had a history of laceration with coaches, among other allegations.
Enyeama posted a message which includes a prayer, some questions, and tells his fans he left the Super Eagles because he didn’t want to be the reason the team was divided, and he did what he did for the good of the team and the nation.
Following Enyeama’s announced exit from the Super Eagles, fans took to social media platforms to express anger and pain over the manner in which he was treated by the new Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh. A hashtag, #ThankYouVincent began to trend on Twitter.
Nigeria went on to lose the friendly match against Congo, suffering a 0-2 defeat which sports analysts described as humiliating.
