Vincent Enyeama of the Super Eagles has decried the state of Nigerian football affairs and expressed deep frustration at how things are going with the Nigerian Football Federation.
The Super Eagle’s captain and number one goalkeeper, who hit his 100th cap for Nigeria last month in a friendly match against the Cranes of Uganda, Enyeama, in an interview with BBC Football, expressed his frustration at the inability of the Nigerian Football Federation to get a coach for the national team.
“I am unhappy at how football is being run in this country, It is really sad that we are playing games without a coach or playing games with a coach who is not ready to take responsibility. The truth of the whole thing is, the whole body is involved, not just the FA, the players or the coaches, I think everything is wrong with Nigerian football. It is so sad that things are going that way and I hope we can sort that.”
Due to all the challenges with the team, Enyeama went ahead to reveal during the interview that he might be quitting the national team, saying his time with the Super Eagle is coming to an end.
“I think I am on my way out, at some point I have to leave. The clock is ticking to midnight. The way things are going are not encouraging. There is no desire to take Nigeria to the top. I’ve always wanted to be part of history, I wanted to be part of people that redirect Nigeria to the right way.
“We succeeded with the AFCON, but we are now back to square one. We have been experimenting and experimenting since I entered the national team. It is really sad.”
