Akpeyi Calls Enyeama A Role Model

SUPER Eagles goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi has said the side’s captain and centurion Vincent Enyeama will forever remain his key role model.
The Warri Wolves shot stopper has been praised for his standout performance in Sunday’s friendly clash in Nelspruit against Bafana Bafana of South Africa.
Akpeyi said aside from Enyeama’s overriding role in his career, Ike Shorunmu, the former Nigerian star and the side’s goalkeeper coach, as well as stand-in coach Daniel Amokachi are equally defining
personalities in his flowering football career.
“Enyeama has been a big brother and role model who has been with me through thick and thin.
“Enyeama has been encouraging and supportive, ever ready to remind me that ups and downs in life are quite natural but something that can spur one on to a higher height.
“He always tell me to look ahead in the face of being picked and dropped, saying that he himself faced a similar fate at some points in his career.
“I learnt a lot from him and I’ll always remain eternally grateful for his positive touch on my career.
