INDISCIPLINE | Oliseh Boots Out Enyeama from Eagles Camp

Kayode Sesan | Lagos

Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, on Tuesday expelled goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama from the team’s camp in Belgium over the player’s indiscipline.

Enyeama, who joined the team on Tuesday (October 6) had rudely questioned Coach Oliseh’s choice of naming Ahmed Musa captain for the friendly games against DR Congo and Cameroon. Oliseh, unable to condone Enyeama’s rude confrontation asked him to leave the team’s hotel and immediately made moves to call up Dele Alampasu.

In September, the goalkeeper failed to report to camp in Abuja for the Super Eagles’ Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania, only for news to break that he had lost his mother.

Coach Oliseh has reiterated that indiscipline and poor show of commitment from players would not be allowed in his team, particularly during the rebuilding phase.

Speaking to Channels Sports, President of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, confirmed that he had spoken with the coach and player.

“When I heard of the situation, I called Coach Sunday Oliseh and he confirmed he told Vincent to leave the team hotel. Yes, there was a misunderstanding but the matter has been resolved and Enyeama will stay in camp,” he said.
