NFF may expel Enyeama from Super Eagles
Vincent Enyeama’s 13-year stay in the Super Eagles may come to an abrupt end soon following the Nigeria Football Federation’s (NFF) plans to expel the Lille of France skipper from the national team over alleged indiscipline.
An NFF source told The Guardian yesterday that the federation may sack Enyeama from the national team if he is found culpable in the allegation of indiscipline leveled against him.
Enyeama is expected to appear before the NFF Disciplinary Committee today to defend his actions after he was queried over his comments on the state of the Ahmadu Bello Stadium and the security situation in Kaduna, venue of Nigeria’s first Nations Cup qualifier against Chad last week.
Enyeama allegedly failed to reply the query. In fact, he has been accused of tearing the letter in the presence of the NFF officials, who took it to him.
“We are not taking any decision until we hear from all the parties involved in the case, but I want to assure you that nobody would be allowed to ridicule this country.
“He is assumed to be innocent until proven otherwise, but there are certain things we take seriously no matter who is involved,” the source said.
However, there is the belief in some quarters that Enyeama would quit the national team if the NFF made the good its promise to sanction him.
A source, who pleaded anonymity, said Enyeama had been thinking of quitting the national team, ‘but he was compelled to stay and help rebuild the team.’
“But if they decide to suspend him, I think that will spell the end of his time in the Super Eagles,” the source, who pleaded anonymity, said.
