Coach of the Super Eagles of Nigeria Gernot Rohr has never hidden his love for former Super Eagles goalkeeper and captain Vincent Enyeama who only recently returned from a six months injury induced absence.
Enyeama is back in training with Lille, but the 35 year old is yet to play a game this season after coach Marcelo Bielsa axed him alongside ten others from his first team upon his appointment as coach.
Bielsa brought in two new goalkeepers but their poor form has made the coach to hand a reprieve to Enyeama, with Lille also struggling to win games and languishing in 19th position on the 20 team log in Ligue 1.
” Rohr is aware that Enyeama is back in training, and not only that he is excited but he won’t be rushed back into the team. Rohr is monitoring his situation at Lille “, spokesman of the Super Eagles Toyin Ibitoye said.
” He has to keep games to be in contention for a return to the team, and hopefully that will happen soon because we need our best players at the World Cup in Russia next year, presently he is among our best”, he concluded.
