President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, has insisted that he is 100% certain Vincent Enyeama will return to the national team.
The Lille goalkeeper quit the Super Eagles, after a bust-up with coach Sunday Oliseh, which also saw him being stripped of the captain’s arm band.
“I had a good conversation with him yesterday and I am 100% convinced he will come back to the Super Eagles,” Pinnick said.
He spoke to Oliseh on the phone for over 20 minutes and they were able to resolve some of their issues. In this case, Nigeria is the winner.”
When Pinnick was specifically asked if Enyeama will return to the squad as the captain, Pinnick replied: “I don’t know. The federation will not be involved in that. It’s up to the coach to choose his captain.
“That’s how it’s done all over the world. It’s the prerogative of the coach.”
