Oliseh, Enyeama at each other’s throat in Belgium


By Tony Ubani

THE Super Eagles camp in Belgium has been torn into shreds following squabbles between Coach Sunday Oliseh and captain Vincent Enyeama ahead of tomorrow’s friendly against Congo.

The arrival of Lille goalkeeper and captain of the Eagles in Belgium which ordinarily should bring cheers to the camp instead, turned the camp into a war zone following allegations of anti-camp activities against the captain.

Very reliable sources in camp informed Sports Vanguard that players who had been loyal and training religiously under started sowing the apple seed of discord among the players, a situation that Oliseh vowed he would not tolerate.

‘’Things are no longer at ease in camp. There was an open shouting match between the coach and Enyeama’’, our source said on our hotline last night.

The source claimed that Sunday Oliseh was so furious that he threatened to work out of the Eagles camp if Enyeama does not leave camp.

‘’Oliseh still insists Vincent Enyeama should be decamped or he will work out of camp’’.

Sports Vanguard gathered that attempts by officials of the NFF to calm the nerves of Oliseh and Enyeama did not yield any fruit as it appeared to escalate with Enyeama allegedly boasting that he had more caps for the Eagles than Oliseh.

The altercations  we learnt has dampened the high spirit of players in camp and may affect the performance of the team against Congo in the friendly tomorrow.

The Eagles are also to play the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on Sunday in a double header friendly arranged by the NFF to prepare them ahead of the 2017 World Cup qualifiers.

Oliseh has since announced Ahmed Musa as captain of the Eagles in place of Enyeama.
