Enyeama To Miss Lille’s Two Matches

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, will miss Lille’s next two matches this week so as to stage a befitting funeral for his mother.

Enyeama flew to Nigeria last weekend for his mother’s funeral and will miss Lille’s next two Ligue 1 fixtures against Nantes at home on Tuesday evening and against Montpellier (again at home) on Friday night.

He was suspended for Lille’s last outing at Reims last Friday after his recent expulsion against Rennes.

After announcing last Thursday that Enyeama would be back between the posts against Nantes, Lille coach Herve Renard admitted Monday they had to let Enyeama fly out to Nigeria because of mounting family pressure.

“There was some changes this weekend, from what was previously planned. The pressure from the family was very high. And then, it will be the international break,” Renard told L’Equipe.
