Enyeama unaware of NFF hearing

25 June 2015, 15:39

Lagos - Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama said he was unaware of any disciplinary proceedings against him after apparently missing a hearing with the Nigerian Football Federation on Tuesday.

Last Friday, the Super Eagles captain was reportedly called to appear in front of a disciplinary committee to explain his comments about the security situation at the venue for their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad in Kaduna.

However, Enyeama insists he knew nothing about the charges against him.

"I respect my country and those in charge of our football, which is why I find the whole thing strange," Enyeama told BBC Sports.

"As the captain, I only raised our concerns about the venue before our game, which didn't go down well with the football authority.

"I was told to apologise for my comments, which I did immediately and they told me that's fine."

Disciplinary committee chairman Chris Green said he wanted the matter to be resolved swiftly.

"In the case of Enyeama we want this matter dealt with internally and quietly because the noise it has generated is uncalled for," Green said.
