Legendary Super Eagles goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has taken charge of his first coaching session at French club Iris Club de Croix.
The 37-year-old was in June appointed a goalkeeper coach at the Championnat National 3 side which competes in the fifth tier of French football.
And the former Lille shot-stopper has clearly gotten down to work judging by footage he shared on social media of him conducting training drills for the IC Croix’s goalkeepers.
IC Croix are currently sixth on the log with four points from four games and are next in action at Valenciennes FC II on 26 September.
While Enyeama has seeming started a new career in coaching, the former Enyimba goalie who retired from international football in 2015 after falling out with former coach Sunday Oliseh, is yet to officially call it quits from professional football.
He has been without a club since August 2018 when he left French side Lille by mutual consent and after a proposed move to another Ligue 1 outfit, Dijon fell through last year, he decided to try his hand at coaching while keeping his options open.
A veteran of three World Cups (2002, 2010 and 2014), Enyeama enjoyed a hugely successful career both at international and club levels.
He amassed a joint-record 101 caps for the Super Eagles and was instrumental as Nigeria won their third Africa Cup of Nations trophy in 2013.
He also won national and continental honours with Enyimba International before going on to win the Israeli topflight with both Hapoel Tel-Aviv and Maccabi Tel-Aviv.
Enyeama was awarded the Prix Marc-Vivien Foé award for the best African player in France after keeping 11 consecutive clean sheets in Ligue 1 matches during 2013-14 season.
Enyeama would hope to replicate his successes as a player in his new career as a coach and would hope his wealth of experience can transform the goalkeeping fortunes at IC Croix.
