Lille goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has hit out at Super Eagles head coach, Gernot Rohr, for claiming to have called him several times but he did not respond.
Enyeama retired from international football in October 2015 after a bust-up with the then coach, Sunday Oliseh.
“When we had crisis in our hands after Carl Ikeme’s injury, I called him (Enyeama) over 10 times and he never responded nor called back,” Rohr told Owngoalnigeria.com.
“I am happy with how Daniel Akpeyi responded to the test when he was called up as emergency cover, but he needs to buckle up because we can’t solely depend on Ikeme.”
But Enyeama insists Rohr never contacted him when he needed a goalkeeper for the 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Algeria last year, after Ikeme was sidelined with injury.
He tweeted: “Why do pple take pleasure in lies just bcos Enyeama is [email protected] the coach never got me on phone, so I wonder why he said that.”
