The impending return of Vincent Enyeama to the senior national team of Nigeria could hamper the unity and also bring about a leadership tussle in the team according to the goalkeeper trainer of the team Alloy Agu.
A little over a year ago, Enyeama left the team in controversial circumstance after a row with then coach Sunday Oliseh, which lead to his removal as captain of the team shortly after he announced his retirement from the team.
Enyeama has agreed to return to the team according to coach Gernot Rohr who still feel the team need his experience despite the presence of goalkeepers like Daniel Akpeyi and Ikechukwu Ezenwa.
The vacuum created by the absence of first choice goalkeeper Carl Ikeme according to Rohr can be filled without stress by Enyeama, who is presently out injured and also having issues at his French side Lille.
While Rohr is certain Enyeama will improve their options, the goalkeeper trainer of the team Alloy Agu thinks otherwise, insisting that Enyeama’s return will only breed fresh leadership crisis and affect the bonding in the team.
Speaking to Sports Village Square, the former Nigeria international goalkeeper said ” The current Super Eagles under the captaincy of John Obi Mikel will do well in Russia. The likes of Ikechukwu Ezenwa, Dele Ajiboye and other goalkeepers have responded well to training “, he said.
