Vincent Enyeama urges Senator Kalu to invest in Enyimba instead of Arsenal
Ex-Super Eagles skipper Vincent Enyeama has urged Senator Orji Uzor Kalu to rechannel his proposed investment 35% shares in Arsenal to the local club, Enyimba Football Club of Aba.
The Senator representing Abia North Senatorial Constituency had announced his intention to become a major shareholder of the Gunners and help provide the funds that would see the Londoners become Premier League and UEFA Champions League winners.
Orji Uzor Kalu was the governor when Enyimba International of Aba won back-to-back Nigeria Premier Football League and CAF Champions League titles in the earlier 2000s.
The billionaire is looking to repeat that incredible feat with Arsenal Football Club.
But Enyeama, arguably Nigeria’s greatest goalkeeper in history, wants Sen. Kalu to direct his attention at his country home’s beloved club, Enyimba, and turn it into Nigeria’s first-ever mega club.
“Why not invest that money in Enyimba and turn it into a mega-club,” the former Enyimba stalwart wrote on Twitter.
“A club that will bring in a lot of sponsors and create job opportunities for the youth.
“Nigeria has no mega-club side that we can boast of.
“(But) what do I know. My mouth keeps putting me into trouble.”
