Why Enyeama is still with Lille

Marc Ingla, Chief Executive of French Ligue 1 club, Lille, ‎has revelaed why Vincent Enyeama is back in training with the club despite being deemed surplus to requirements by new coach Marcelo Bielsa alongside ten others.

The former captain and goalkeeper of the Super Eagles was part of the players Bielsa axed from his first team when he resumed as coach in July.

While the other ten have terminated their contracts by mutual understanding, Enyeama is back in training with the club after returning from a six months injury lay off and surgery on a meniscus he picked up towards the end of last season.

Speaking to ‎newsmen, Ingla explained that Enyeama is still at the club because the 35 year old had shown a positive attitude since joining the club and for the fact that he just had a surgery.

”I do not have a very specific answer. Vincent (Enyeama) has a very positive attitude. He is recovering from surgery he had in April on his knee. He is back in training now and we will take it from there”, Ingla said.
