The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) says the rift between Nigeria Super Eagles head coach Sunday Oliseh and goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has been ‘resolved’ as reports emerged that the duo had d confrontation over the captaincy armband.
Oliseh had reportedly told the Lille keeper that the Super Eagles’ captaincy armband had been passed to Ahmed Musa, something that didn’t go down well with the long-serving Enyeama.
“It was a nasty and ugly scene as Enyeama and Oliseh insulted the life out of each other that at a time it looked like security would have to be called up,” a source informed AfricanFootball.com
Nigeria are preparing to play two friendlies in Belgium, first against DR Congo in Liege this Thursday, and then against their West African nemesis Cameroon in Dendermonde on Sunday as part of the build-up for their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Burkina Faso in October 16, 2015.
Reports emerged that Enyeama had been expelled from the camp in Belgium, but the NFF revealed on Twitter that the situation had been resolved.
“It’s true that there was a little misunderstanding in the camp of @NGSuperEagles, but the matter has been resolved. Enyeama remains in camp,” the tweet read.
