The search for two good goalkeppers for the Super Eagles of Nigeria has forced coach of the team Gernot Rohr to reopen talks with former captain Vincent Enyeama over a possible return to the team.
Ade Ojeikere revealed in his report for The NationSport that Rohr has been very impressed with Enyeama’s recent form for Lille which has seen him nominated into the team of the week in France severally this season.
Rohr on his part is also not comfortable with the options he has as back up to current first choice Carl Ikeme, and unconfirmed reports has it that he has tactfully reopened talks with the 33 year old.
Few months ago, Rohr ruled out trying to persuade Enyeama to return to the Eagles citing the refusal of the goalkepper to take or return his calls, a claim Enyeama termed as false in a response to Owngoalnigeria.com story on Rohr’s claim.
However it appears Rohr has patched up his differences with Enyeama and talks are currently progressing nicely on his possible return from a self impose exile from the Nigeria national team, after a disagreement with former coach Sunday Oliseh.
Some members of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) who are aware of his contact with Enyeama over a return to the team are not opposed to the idea, since selection of players rest squarely on the coach.
