Heartland FC goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa has suggested his career would have never come true without the existence of one Vincent Enyeama.
Ezenwa revealed to the media that the iconic Super Eagles legend Enyeama was to him like the senior boy in high school a kid wants to become.
“My favourite goalkeeper that gives me motivation is Vincent Enyeama,” Ezenwa told the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) social media account.
“The first time in the Nigerian Professional Football League, in 2006, when I signed my first professional contract, everything he did then when he was at Enyimba, that’s the same way I was dressing – the cutting of jersey and every other thing.
“I love him so much, he’s my mentor, even to this day I keep talking to him, trying to learn more from him because from watching him play for the country he gives me so much joy because there is this charisma in him.”
Ezenwa concluded by revealing the most one outstanding feature he learned from his mentor’s game: calm and confidence.
“You will never see him panic, the confidence in him that he carries to a game is what I’ve always learned from him and I think it’s paying off for me and he’s a man I will never forget,” Ezenwa concluded.
