–Reveals Ebola ordeal in France
Super Eagles captain and goalkeeper,Vincent Enyeama was last night named Nigeria’s Footballer of the Year at the Nigerian Sports Awards held at the Muson Centre,Onikan,Lagos.
Enyeama who is also in the running for the GLO-CAF and BBC African player of the year awards was the run-away winner for the honour following his impressive showing in the French Lique 1 last season where he kept 21 clean sheet for the season.
Meanwhile Enyeama has revealed that his French club Lille monitor him for three weeks for Ebola Virus Disease every time he returns from international duty.
“My club monitors me for three weeks any time I return from Nigeria because of Ebola and nobody wants to sit around you or shake you then,” said Enyeama.
“But I must now commend the Nigerian government for the massive effort they put up to eradicate it from the country and get an approval from the WHO (World Health Organisation).”
However, Enyeama maintained that if he had his way, AFCON 2015 will still be shifted to a later date because of the Ebola disease.
“If I were CAF, I will suspend the tournament because it is difficult to contain. But if we qualified, I will play in the tournament,” he said.
Meanwhile, Enyeama has continued to train fully with the rest of the Eagles squad despite nursing a strain on his right shoulder.
