Enyeama makes revelation On Africans winning the World Best

Nigeria legend Goalkeeper made a case for
Eto’o, who came third at the 2005 FIFA World
Player of the Year award ceremony, behind
Ronaldinho and Frank Lampard.
“I told them [French media] to their face, it is
good to criticise Vincent when he makes a
mistake but you all need to praise Vincent
like you do to other goalkeepers.
“You don’t praise me when I play good
games, you don’t give me the hype. When I
deserve an award, you don’t give them to me
but when I make mistakes you blast me like I
made heaven came to earth. It is ok because
I’m African and I’m not French, some of these
things happen.
“It is like you want to compare Jay-Jay
Okocha, Samuel Eto’o and some of the world
best players. It’s like when Eto’o deserved to
have won the world best player at a point in
his career because he was just too good.
“But he never had it because there’s one
Ronaldinho who is Brazilian and one
Schevenchko who is Ukrainian. I’m used to
this thing but it is painful.
“I don’t think it is intentional. It is just normal,
sometimes you don’t like this particular
person so much no matter what he does, you
don’t praise him,” Enyeama said.
