Leave Lille now, Shorunmu tells Enyeama
. Only way to be relevant in Eagles
Thursday, April 19, 2012

The Super Eagles’ safe hands, Vincent Enyeama, is eager to leave his France club Lille FC, to a club where he can have regular playing time. Eagles goalkeepers trainer, Ike Shorunmu, reacting to the development, advised Enyeama to make a hasty move out of Lille if he still wanted to remain relevant in his football career.
“It is said he who wears the shoe knows where it is pinching”.

Shorunmu said Enyeama was a professional football player, and knew what was good for him. If he feels he is no longer at ease in France with his club, it is left for him to take the decision and nobody would do that for him. Now, if he has decided to do that, it is good for him and for the nation. A footballer to be relevant in his career, he has to have a constant playing time, otherwise his performance would be affected.

“Goalkeeping is a very sensitive area in football and only constant playing time will keep a keeper in top form, otherwise he would be match rusty. I see his move as a good development.

All he needs do is to believe in himself and he will bounce back. What happened to him can happen to anybody, we still have hope that he will come back to his full fitness,” Shorunmu said.

It would be recalled that since Enyeama arrived Lille from Hapoel Tel-Aviv last summer, he has not played a single Ligue 1 game for Lille and has been consigned to only cup games and mostly seen on the bench which has not help his goalkeeping career.
