TRANSFER: Enyeama begins career comeback with French club

Vincent Enyeama has sent a message to Genort Rohr about Super Eagles return if he gets a club and is back to his best, he’ll honour a call-up.

The 37-year-old goalkeeper announced his retirement from international football in 2015 after he clash with defunct national team coach Sunday Oliseh.

Enyeama has been without a club since he left Lille at the end of his contract in 2018 from where he joined from 2011 from Israeli club Maccabi Tel-Aviv but the Eyimba stopper set to prove his fitness in an attempt to earn a deal before the 2019-20 season is over.

The former Super Eagles captain told Brila.net: "Nobody contacted me”.

"Since I left Nigeria football in 2015, nobody has contacted me. All the things you heard about me turning down the Super Eagles is false and I just didn’t want to exacerbate it by joining issues with those peddling the story.”

"I cannot say no to Nigeria; if Nigeria tells me today that there’s a goalkeeping problem and they need me I can’t say no.

Enyeama was a member of the Nigeria team that won the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa and he still the most appearances [101] alongside Joseph Yobo in Super Eagles history.
