Lille Manager Galtier: Why I Can’t Play Enyeama For Now

Lille Manager Galtier: Why I Can’t Play Enyeama For Now

By Johnny Edward:                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Lille manager Christophe Galtier has revealed that Nigerian goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama’s problems with the hierarchy at the club has denied him a chance to return to the first team squad.

The former Super Eagles captain has not featured for the first team since returning from a cruciate knee ligament injury in November.

“I answer you sincerely, Enyeama’s problem is not a sporting one. It’s one between the club and the player,” Galtier told planetelille.com.

Enyeama has featured in two games for Lille’s B team since he returned to full fitness.

He was in goal for Lille B in their 3-1 win over Croix Football IC in the French fourth-tier on 9 December, 2017 and against Viry Chatillon which ended 3-0 on 24 March.

The 35-year-old joined Lille in 2011/12 season and has made 143 Ligue 1 appearances for the club.

Lille are facing relegation in 19th place in the 20 team Ligue 1 table with 29 points from 34 games.

    Wetin concern Vincent Enyeama if you play him or not. Na you loss. We are 90% sure Lille will be relegated. Such a big club. Maybe Enyeama would have saved them.
