Enyeama calls for caution in handling senior Super Eagles players.
Despite his media outburst on Tuesday, Super Eagles assistant skipper, Vincent Enyeama, says Skipper, Joseph Yobo, remains the authentic leader of the national team.
Enyeama also said that Yobo will soon return to the national team because of his wealth of experience.
Speaking from his base in Israel to Eagles Media Officer, Ben Alaiya, Enyeama said whether Yobo is a starter for the national team or not, all the players of the team still believe in his leadership qualities, same as the coaching crew headed by Stephen Keshi.
“We have to be careful in how we handle senior players of the national team, because we need their experience, leadership and above all they serve as motivation to the younger players. That is why Yobo is still important and the technical crew knows so. If we treat them well the level of commitment of both the old and the new players will be total but if we do otherwise we will have problems on and off the pitch”, declared the Maccabi Tel Aviv FC shot stopper.
Yobo was not invited to the last Super Eagles World Cup Qualifier against Kenya. The Eagles captain on Tuesday claimed that a Super Eagles coach was envious of his achievements.
Enyeama assured that the Super Eagles will make it to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, noting that the draw in Calabar against the Harambee Stars of Kenya last month, will be corrected in the return leg in Nairobi.
