The Nigerian Football Federation are planning a testimonial game to honour stripped Super Eagles skipper Vincent Enyeama despite his recent outburst with head coach of the side, Sunday Oliseh, 366football.com can report.
The Lille of France goalie left the Super Eagles camp in Belgium angrily on Thursday due to the ugly row with Oliseh, but returned on Saturday for re-conciliatory talks with top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation.
At the meeting was the President of the NFF, Amaju Pinnick, as well as the two Vice-Presidents, Barrister Seyi Akinwunmi and Shehu Dikko.
Pinnick told the NFF official website that Enyeama has served the nation so well in the last 13 years and that if he is determined to quit international football, he must not do so in situation of acrimony.
“I told him that he did so well for Nigeria over the past 13 and half years that he had been there, and by all means, is deserving of a honourable exit.
”What ever the situation, whether he decides to return to the team or not, the NFF will organise a testimonial match in his honour because he served the nation so well.
“However, the head coach is in full charge of the team and the camp at all times , and that fact must be respected.
“The NFF will support and respect the decision of the head coach of any of the national teams at all times.
“Both Oliseh and Enyeama are true heroes of Nigeria football if you look at what they have achieved at different times.”
