0

Nigeria legend Vincent Enyeama has become a free agent after reaching an agreement with Lille today to terminate the contract that binds them, informs the official website of the Ligue 1 Club.

The goalkeeper was on the books of Lille for seven years after joining from Hapoel Tel Aviv, though he spent the 2012-2013 season on loan at Maccabi Tel Aviv.

Enyeama posted 65 shutouts in 164 first-team games for Lille and conceded 156 goals in the matches.

In the 2013-2014 Season, the 36-year-old netminder was very close to breaking the clean-sheet record held by retired Bordeaux numero uno Gaëtan Huard which he set in the 1992 – 1993 Season.

He helped Lille qualify for the final of the 2016 Coupe de la Ligue against Paris Saint-Germain and featured for the club in the Europa League and Champions League.

Enyeama had spells at Ibom Stars, Enyimba and Heartland before joining Bnei Yehuda in 2005.
