Former Super Eagles goalie, Vincent Enyeama has revealed reasons he didn’t sign for the Gunners even when an opportunity came Knocking in 2006.
According to the Free Agent, his agent alerted him on a possible move to the Emirates after the gunners showed interest on him.
“It was after the 2006 Nations Cup and then again around the 2014 World Cup. When I turned them down, that is when they [Arsenal] took David Ospina.
Vincent Enyeama also partook in trials with Bolton Wanderers but wasn’t signed by the former premier league side.
“I am still wondering why I didn’t sign. It was a trial that went so well. They even told me I was going to get jersey number 35. All that was left was just to do the medicals,” he said.
“I was supposed to be number three, because Bolton had two goalkeepers already, with Jussi Jaaskelainen as number one.
“But I don’t regret it because it gave me the opportunity to go to Israel. I am so happy that I went to Israel because it opened doors for me.”
Enyeama has since been without a club ever since parting ways with Lille. The shot stopper Was close to signing for Dijon Last season but unfortunately, the Deal didn’t go through.
