Former Super Eagles keeper, Vincent Enyeama’s career at Lille may receive a shot in the arm after manager, Christophe Galtie hinted that Enyeama still have a chance to prove himself with the French Ligue 1 side.
Galtier has expressed the same fears as Nigeria manager Gernot Rohr, who has doubts about including the former Super Eagles captain in his World Cup roster due to match-rustiness.
‘’It’s a reflection I had and I still have. He has not played for a year at this level . He is still handicapped in relation to his injury (knee) and many things he can not do,’’ Galtier told reporters.
This season, the experienced netminder has played only two matches for the reserve team of Lille and his last appearance was on March 24 against Viry Châtillon.
In a bid to step up his fitness, the former Enyimba shot-stopper has requested that he should play matches for the reserve team, who compete in the National 2 or fourth-tier, only at home.
Due to loss of form, Lille first-choice goalkeeper Mike Maignan is now in the same boat as Enyeama and was left out of the squad that traveled to Bordeaux this past weekend.
