Vincent Enyeama Shares "Apologetic Post" To The NFF And Then Deletes It

The ongoing saga between Vincent Enyeama and the Nigerian Football Federation seems to be finally over.

It will be recalled that the NFF summoned Vincent Enyeama, the Super Eagles captain before a disciplinary committee for what it described as “unguarded comments” to the media over its choice of the Ahmadu Bello Stadium in Kaduna for their 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Chad earlier this month.

Enyeama did not turn up before the committee on the claims that he did not receive any official notification of such and did not respond to an earlier query given by the NFF.

However the Lille shot stopper has shared an “apologetic post” on his page to ease the tension and possibly end the whole saga with the NFF. 

He has although deleted the post from his account But not before i had saved it. You can confirm his page on instagram

The post which is a cartoon pictures a man with a whip (which happens to be the NFF) and two other men kneeling in front of him (Chief coach and Eagles captain)

Never Give Up! Read Alexis Sanchez Touching Message As Chile Reach #CopaAmerica Semis

Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez had a message to fans who have their hearts set on achieving their hopes and dreams as he documented his path to stardom.

Sanchez posted a picture to his Instagram page of him as a young boy, clearly with his mind on becoming a footballer.

He told his followers ‘Do not let anyone steal your dreams… still struggling’ after explaining it was a picture from his time in Buenos Aires.
Arsenal’s new forward grew up in poverty-stricken rural Chile in a mining town called Tocopilla – which literally means Devil’s Corner – and he used to perform on the street for money at the tender age of six.
In an interview with The Sun on Sunday, Sanchez’s brother Humberto revealed the Chilean international’s journey from his impoverished upbringing and earning a living on the streets at the age of six to global football superstar.

Humberto said: ‘Alexis had nothing when growing up. He had to fight for everything he has.
‘We were the poorest of the poor so Alexis had to earn money any way he could from a very young age.

‘He would wash cars for a few pence or perform somersaults for a handful of coins from onlookers. He was like a little gymnast, hurling himself all over the place.

‘The neighbours would give him a few coins for entertaining them. Sometimes he was so hungry he would knock on neighbours’ doors and ask for bread. They would always gibe him what they had to spare. On occasions Alexis would box in the street for entertainment.’
Yet now the 25-year-old is on a £130,000-a-week contract with Arsenal

Opinion: Is Firmino The Right Catalyst For Success At Liverpool?

As much as I think Firmino is a good player who could be a success in the Premier League, I wonder is he really the player Liverpool need?

Liverpool have made it clear that Raheem Sterling is not for sale. Some fans may state that Firmino is a replacement for Sterling but I’m not sure that’s the case. 

Liverpool have turned down two big money moves for Sterling. If you either want to sell a player or are happy enough to let them go, you don’t turn down that much money, especially for Raheem Sterling.
Even if they want to move Sterling on now, rejecting both of City’s offers may lead to very few bids coming in for him. This could leave Liverpool with Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino,  Ibe Sterling and maybe Markovic are all vying for attacking midfield positions.

It’s clear Liverpool’s problem last season was a lack of a proven goalscorer. Origi and Ings are both promising but cannot be relied on for consistent goals. Sturridge’s injury problems are obviously well documented. The nearly £30million spent on Firmino could have been better spent on a goalscorer or even trying to bring in a top centre-back.

Firmino could end up being a revelation next season and I’m not denying that he’s a good signing, but surely £30 million would be better spent in other positions.
