Oliseh: Enyeama lied about everything

Sunday Oliseh has denied claims made by former Nigeria International Vincent Enyeama that the goalie was ‘ humiliated and ruffled by security personnel at the team’s camp in Belgium.

Speaking exclusively to www.footballlive.ng, the Coach stressed that the 33-year-old had made spurious allegations on social media to smear and assassinate his character.
Describing the scenario which led to the goalkeeper’s ejection from the team’s dinner, Oliseh insists the 101 capped-Enyeama became unruly and persistent on airing an entirely different concern from the agenda arising from a poor showing in training earlier.


A former captain of the team himself, Oliseh pointed to the squad’s lean numbers in camp owing to visas hitches with the Belgian embassy – 2 Goalkeepers of 4 invited and 15 players- hence the coaches made exigency plans to invite players who did not require visas to enter Belgium.


Former youth international, Dele Alampasu was handed a senior team call up; as the third choice goalkeeper and Enyeama will have none of it, informing the coach he’d leave camp since there was a replacement according to Oliseh.

Nigeria lost 2-0 against DR Congo in the ensuing palaver in the Eagles Camp but Oliseh has called for patience with the team as the commitment to ensure Nigeria qualifies for the 2017 Afcon was still atop the agenda.
