Vincent Enyeama Apologizes To Siasia And Nigerians

Vincent Enyeama, Super Eagles goal keeper has apologized over the alleged act of misconduct that had him dropped from the Super Eagles squad in their match against Madagascar. John Mikel Obi, Victor Anichebe and Enyeama had complained about the details regarding the team’s transport such as the mode of transport and the date for which the journey was fixed. Their actions were said to have delayed movement terribly. Siasia who was infuriated by what happened dropped Enyeama from the list of players to be fielded in the match.

On Friday, Enyeama said he was sorry while insisting that his travel plan concerns were ‘completely misunderstood’.

“My concerns were over safety, comfort and a better treatment in team’s preparation,” the former Hapoel Tel Aviv man told BBC Sport.

“What I said and how I went about it probably didn’t go down well with some people – but that was me. “I raised a very sensitive issue, a selfless one in the best interest of the team, but was told of its bad timing. “I felt it was something that was dealt with in-house (but) unfortunately it has been blown out of proportion in the media. “I apologise to the coach, officials and to my colleagues, in particular, and to the nation in general for all that has happened.”

The Super Eagles coach has however remained mute over whether or not he has accepted Enyeama’s apology, when asked about it he simply said “I don’t want to talk about it. I don’t want to talk about it at all”.
