Oliseh defends Enyeama

29 June 2015, 18:51

Lagos - Former Nigeria captain Sunday Oliseh has leapt to the defence of Vincent Enyeama, while also launching a stinging attack on the Nigerian Football Federation.

Super Eagles goalkeeper Enyeama has found himself in hot waters with the NFF after questioning the level of security at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna, where they contested their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad.

Enyeama was ordered to appear before a disciplinary committee to explain his comments, but failed to turn up for the appointment after claiming he was never made aware of the order.

Oliseh, though, sees no reason why the keeper should answer to the NFF, telling footballlive.ng: "He's not a civil servant why are you querying him, he's a professional football player, the captain and he aired his opinion that I think should be respected.

"Who do we think we are, this is one of the best goalkeepers in the world. Who are the members of the committee that want to question him, these men have never played football and neither do they know how football is run."
