“My club monitors me for three weeks any time I return from Nigeria because of Ebola and nobody wants to sit around you or shake you then,” said Enyeama.
Enyeama who also had earlier lend his voice to call on the Confederation of African Football (CAF), to shift the date of the Orange Cup competition, noted that if he was CAF, he would have postponed the competition.
The player explained that the virus is not easy to contain but stressed that no matter what, if Nigeria qualifies for the competition, he will gladly honour his country’s call to duty.
Meanwhile, Super Eagles goalkeeper trainer, Ike Shorunmu has revealed that No 1 the shot stopper would undergo a late fitness test to know if he would be ready for the AFCON qualifier against Congo this weekend.
