Gernot Rohr Confirms Plans To Hold Talks With Enyeama Over International Retirement

Technical Adviser of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr says he will hold talks with former captain of the Super Eagles Vincent Enyeama to see if he can persuade the Lille shot stopper to come out of international retirement.

As reported by Owngoalnigeria.com on the 18th of August, the German coach confirmed during the press parley of the team, that he will arrange a meeting with the former Super Eagles captain after this weekend game against Tanzania.

” I plan to meet with Enyeama after the game against Tanzania, I will most likely meet him in France and see how best I can persuade him to come out of international retirement as he is still very much vital to our plans of reaching Russia 2018″ He said during the press parley.

” For the Tanzania tie, we have Carl Ikeme who will come in today and two others in camp with us, so we are covered in that area”.

Enyeama was forced to quit the senior Nigeria national team in October 2015 after a row with former coach Sunday Oliseh, a day after he was stripped of the captain’s armband of the team.
