Rohr opens door for Enyeama return

Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has hinted that former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, may return to the national team set-up after his retirement in 2015.

The Lille shot-stopper, who is seemingly out of favour with his Ligue One club in France, retired in October 2015 with issues between himself and the Nigeria Football Federation said to be behind the decision.

Nonetheless, Rohr has suggested he may return in future if issues can be resolved. He told Owngoalnigeria.com, “The true position is that I have a good relationship with Enyeama and he has a problem with the Federation before I came on board as coach, and when I called him and he said there’s a problem with the Federation, I cannot come at the moment.

“I tried to call him again and now I call him again,‎ he asked to take some leave for his injury. I think the situation is a little bit different, some players who don’t want to play for their national team can change their mind.

“But unfortunately the injury of Vincent means he cannot come for this game against Cameroon, not only that he also has to find another club because his club bought two other goalkeepers.

“So he cannot play at the moment at his club, he must be fit first and also find another club then hopefully he will be motivated to come back to the national team.”
