“I think one of the tasks before him will be to find a replacement
for Vincent Enyeama,” Rufai said.
“But Enyeama is still around and we don’t have to panic but
it is definitely one of the things the coach will have to look at because we
need to have someone capable when he (Enyeama) is gone and that is why I think
it is one of the things the coach will have to do.”
When quizzed on the goalkeeper he thinks will be the capable
replacement for Enyeama, Rufai said he will be in support of whichever
goalkeeper the Super Eagles coaches feels is the right one.
“I believe the coaches know what they are doing and I’m sure
they must be looking at other options so whichever goalkeeper they choose
eventually will be good I believe,” Rufai stated.
