Lagos - Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Emmanuel Babayaro
wants the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to strip Vincent Enyeama of his
role as captain of the Super Eagles over what he terms as indiscipline.
The Lille shot stopper allegedly tore a letter of query
served to him by the NFF over his criticism of Kaduna State, venue of their
Saturday game against Chad which they won 2-0.
Enyeama who has been captaining the Eagles since Yobo left
the national team after the 2014 world cup, complained of security and the
weather in the northern state prior to the game, and also openly criticized the
NFF for moving the game to Kaduna as oppose to Abuja, Uyo and Calabar where the
Eagles have been playing their games lately.

Babayaro in his opinion said if it's true Enyeama tore the
query then he should be strip off the captaincy as that singular act is not
befitting for a team captain.
"The NFF should take the captaincy from him if it's
true he tore the query, as a captain he needs to set good precedence for the
young ones and that act is unacceptable as a captain," he told News24.
"No man is bigger than the team not even the captain,
England treated John Terry in the same way when he crossed the line, so Enyeama
shouldn't be an exception.
