Vincent Enyeama says no one will shake hands for fear of Ebola

Nigeria goalkeeper feels like an outcast due to public fear of contracting deadly disease.

Nigeria skipper Vincent Enyeama says that his French club Lille monitor him for three weeks for the Ebola virus every time he returns from international duty.

“My club monitors me for three weeks any time I return from Nigeria because of Ebola and nobody wants to sit around you or shake you then,” said Enyeama.

“But I must now commend the Nigerian government for the massive effort they put up to eradicate it from the country and get an approval from the WHO (World Health Organisation).”

Enyeama, who captained Nigeria to success at the 2013 African Cup of Nations, says he is sympathetic to the predicament of Morocco, who pulled out of hosting the 2015 event for fear of the spread of the Ebola virus.

“If I were CAF, I will suspend the tournament because it is difficult to contain. But if we qualified, I will play in the tournament,” he said.
