Enyeama Parts Ways With Lille
Former Super Eagles captain Vincent Enyeama has reached an agreement with Lille to terminate his contract with the French Ligue 1 side.
Lille confirmed the development on the club’s website, adding that the 36-year-old will be remembered for his smiles.
“Beyond his performances, LOSC and his supporters will remember Vincent's smile and enthusiasm.
“The club now wishes him the best in his future projects.”
Enyeama joined the club from Hapoel Tel Aviv in 2011, but hasn't featured for the Northern side since April 2017.
He was deemed surplus to requirements by previous coach Marcelo Bielsa, and was overlooked by his successor Christophe Galtier.
Enyeama played 164 games in the Lille jersey during his seven years spell. Interspersed with a loan of one season at Maccabi Tel-Aviv between 2012-2013.
With Lille, the Nigerian goalkeeper was, in the 2013-2014 fiscal year, very close to breaking the record of unbeaten Ligue 1 held by Gaëtan Huard, while in April 23, 2016, he reached with his partners the final of the Coupe de la Ligue against Paris Saint-Germain (2-1).
