Nigeria legend Vincent Enyeama leaves LOSC

Vincent Enyeama has parted ways with LOSC by mutual consent after not appearing for the French club for over a year.

Lille’s decision to terminate the contract with Enyeama, who arrived the club from Israeli side Maccabi Tel-Aviv in 2011, comes two days after the Nigerian turned 36.

Both parties confirmed the contract termination on Twitter, with the club writing, “🔴 Vincent Enyeama and LOSC have reached an agreement go their separate ways. The club would like to wish Vincent – who made 164 appearances for us – all the very best in his future endeavours.”

In a seven-year Lille career, interspersed with a season-long loan move to Maccabi Tel-Aviv (2012-2013), Enyeama made 164 appearances.

In 2013, the most-capped Nigeria international of all time, came within 114 minutes of equalling Ligue 1 record for most minutes without conceding a goal held by Gaëtan Guard, when he went 1062 minutes without letting in a goal.

Two seasons later, Enyeama failed to feature for Lille throughout the an entire campaign. In the early stages of the season, reports claimed the AFCON 2013 winner was frozen out of Les Douges after he was deemed surplus to requirement by then Head Coach Marcelo Bielsa, but current manager Christopher Galtier told that the goalkeeper was kept out of the Lille side due to a fallout with the club’s owners.
