Enyeama Explains Row With Oliseh, May Quit Eagles
Super Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama has explained his row with the coach of the team, Sunday Oliseh.
Enyeama’s row with the coach reportedly started after he arrived at the Nigeria camp on Tuesday, one day after Monday’s deadline, after attending his mother’s funeral over the weekend in his home town.
According to reports, Oliseh was unhappy about his captain’s late arrival and demoted him at a team meeting after dinner, naming CSKA Moscow forward Ahmed Musa as the new captain. Speaking to Colin Udoh of ESPN FC,Enyeama said:
“I was surprised,”So I stood up to explain my position and ask for an explanation, but the coach asked me to sit down.I insisted on speaking because I felt that with the years of dedicated service I have given to the country I deserve at least the respect of giving my own side. But he told me that either the whole team would leave the room for me, or I would have to leave the room for the whole team.”“There has been a lot of incidents these last few months,” he said. “I don’t need it, the team does not need it, so maybe the best thing might be to step aside in the interest of the country so that the team can focus on football instead of distractions.”
