Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has shared photographs of his return to preseason training at LOSC Lille, appearing to suggest that he’s intending to remain with the Ligue 1 side.
Despite having been the club’s first-choice stopper for four seasons, the Super Eagles guardsman was axed from the team last term.
He didn’t play a single minute of Ligue 1 football – contrasted with 2855 the year before – with coach Christophe Galtier telling journalists that a disagreement between the player and the club’s management was behind his inactivity.
The 35-year-old had been tipped for the Lille exit door this summer, with Racing Club de Strasbourg just one club reportedly interested in his signature, according to L’Equipe [via Foot National].
However, writing on his @vinpee Twitter handle on Monday, the 2013 African Cup of Nations winner appeared to hint that his future remains with Lille.
“First training session of the new season 2018/19,” Enyeama posted. “Same place, same passion.”
Last season, Lille had the joint-third worst defensive record in Ligue 1, conceding 67 goals in 38 fixtures.
As recently as the 2015-16 season, with Enyeama between the sticks, Lille had the second best defensive record in the division – behind only Paris Saint-Germain, having conceded 27 goals all season.
