Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr has said the club’s former goal keeper, Vincent Enyeama will return to the club if the tem wins ticket to the 2018 World cup in Russia.
Though the Super Eagles stars have so far been impressive in the ongoing world cup qualifiers as the beat Zambia 2-1 in the first leg of the competition, the return of the outstanding goalkeeper depends on the team’s ticket to Russia.
Since Enyeama left the club last year, Wolves of England goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme has been keepinggoal.
“I’ve known him (Ikeme) before now. I have seen him in his club, Wolverhampton Wanderers a second division side in England. I like his approach to the game, his concentration, calmness, attitude to training and games.’ Rohr told CompleteSportsNigeria.
“He is a good goalkeeper and I must commend him for his saves in Ndola. Carl kept us in the game by pulling at least three great saves. He was the man of the match against Zambia. Great guy.
“I said it that I wanted Vincent Enyeama to return from retirement and I called him and we spoke with him. He will come back if we qualify for the World Cup. We need very good goalkeepers in the Eagles.
“We have two local goalkeepers whom I don’t know if they will fit in if Carl sustains an injury, so I think we need two big goalkeepers. Of course for this moment, Carl is number one. We cannot change him, he will be number one for the next game.”
