Nigeria's new super eagle coach Oliseh backs Enyeama Over Kaduna Comment

Super Eagles head coach, Sunday Oliseh has said Vincent Enyeama did no wrong in criticising the choice of Kaduna after a game against Chad during the first leg of the 2017 Cup of Nations qualifiers.
Enyeama was issued a query by the Football Federation after the comment. He was also summoned to the disciplinary committee which he failed to appear, followed by speculations he might not be invited to play for the Eagles again.
However, Chairman of the disciplinary committee, Chris Green said the Federation have decided to pardon Enyeama and they will make it a family issue.
Speaking on a recent television programme, Oliseh who is a former captain of the Super Eagles supported Enyeama and quickly added that, he can be guided to avoid negative effects on the team.
“When Enyeama made that statement, he was and is still the Team’s captain of the Super Eagles of Nigeria”
Explaining further, Oliseh reiterated that Enyeama spoke on behalf of the team and should not be stopped from speaking out because he is the captain.
“I however think he might be speaking out because of what he has discussed with his teammates, and I don’t think we should stop someone from speaking out when he is the captain.”
“I will speak to the captain and we will look at the way forward because I still view him as one of the best goalkeepers we have” he concluded.
