Former Super Eagles captain, Vincent Enyeama has finally confirmed that he is ready to return to the Nigerian national team.
Enyeama’s return has long been an issue of speculation and debate, but Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr has now stated publicly that the most capped Nigerian player, with 101 appearances under his gloves will soon be back in the team.
Enyeama quit the Eagles under controversial circumstances in 2015 following a disagreement with then head coach, Sunday Ogorchukwu Oliseh, but Rohr says all that is now in the past.
Speaking ahead of Nigeria’s World Cup clash with Cameroo0n, Rohr admitted that his major challenge was with the goalkeeper’s position, but believes that would soon be put to rest once Enyeama returns.
Rohr said he has spoken on the matter with Enyeama and stressed that the goalkeeper is ready to rejoin the squad, but says that would only be after he fully recovers from recent surgery on a nagging injury and is able to get another club.
“The past is the past but now he is injured. He has to win the fight against injury,” Rohr said.
