Enyeama took to his Instagram handle to
appreciate his family, fans, teammates and
supporters for their support.
The 33-year-old recently missed out on
winning silverware with Lille this season as
they lost 2-1 to PSG in the French Cup final.
Enyeama’s illustrious international career
came to an abrupt end last year when he
announced his retirement after a publicized
fall out with former Nigeria coach Sunday
Oliseh.




He earned a record 101 caps with the Super
Eagles and won the 2013 Africa Cup of
Nations title.
Enyeama had alleged that his confrontation
with ex-coach Sunday Oliseh arose after his
dead mother was insulted.
But in a swift response, Oliseh claimed
Enyeama lied and committed character
assassination.
The confrontation escalated quickly and
dominated discussions for days, eventually
leading to Enyeama’s premature retirement
from the Super Eagles. And with Nigerians
still coming to terms with Enyeama’s
retirement from international football via
Instagram, West Ham on-loan forward,
Emmanuel Emenike, also called it quit to his
international career, citing irreconcilable
differences with Oliseh.
