Nigeria former international, Garba Lawal, has warned French-based totally Nigerian goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, to withstand every drive hooked up on him to rescind his retirement decision and return to the super Eagles, insisting that he would regret the motion.
talking to day by day Sunsports on telephone from Kaduna, the former Eagles participant argued that Nigerians will not exonerate him from any blame will have to the tremendous Eagles fail to pick ticket to the FIFA World Cup and the AFCON 2019.
Lawal disregarded insinuations that Enyeama’s return will clear up the goalkeeping difficulty presently dealing with the crew, likening it to bringing the likes of Austin Okocha or Uche Okechukwu from retirement because super Eagles is going through midfield and defence hindrance.
Reacting to the inquiry on whether he will advise Enyeama’s return, he said: “i will not recommendation Enyeama to come back again to the tremendous Eagles regardless of the force from Nigerians and stakeholders. He has retired and must stay so.
“i do know that he used to be pressured into retirement as a result of the rift he had with Sunday Oliseh but he should keep away from the workforce. We must also admire his decision to retire as a substitute of forcing him out of retirement.
“My concern is that people will blame it on his return should Eagles fail to pick the tickets. even though I don’t see him coming again, on the other hand i’ll recommend him to just keep away,” he warned.
On his coming again to solve the goalkeeper crisis facing the staff, Lawal said: “we all performed the game and retired but we did not return even when our retirement created vacuums within the workforce. Don’t put out of your mind that Jay-Jay, Kalu, Ikpeba, Amokachi, Uche, Finidi and many others left very long time ago but does it imply we will have to return as a result of there is main issue within the group, he querried
“It does not work that manner and the way I see it’s that this is the time for some individuals to capitalise on the chance and clutch it. it is a problem to the younger goalkeepers to step in.
I just want to urge the technical crew to present them self belief.
“before Enyeama, there have been other excellent goalkeepers however they didn’t bow to drive to come back. we now have to respect Enyeama’s decision. he will rubbish the recognition he constructed over time by means of coming again as a result of persons are clamouring for his return,” he stated.
