Ex-Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama has been handed a lifeline by Marcelo Bielsa following his return from a six months injury lay off.
Enyeama has had to work with personal trainers away from LOSC Lille since Marcelo Bielsa deemed the goalie and 11 other surplus to requirements.
The decision allowed other players secure a move away from the club.
Enyeama, 35, couldn’t make a move in the summer as he was recuperating from the meniscus surgery he had towards the end of last season.
Now fully recovered the goalkeeper posted a video of himself back in training with the team for the first time in six months.

This is sure to increase speculation of a possible return to the Super Eagles and a possible place at the World Cup next summer.
Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr expressed his willingness to have the vastly experienced goalkeeper around following Carl Ikeme’s diagnosis with Nigeria battling to find an assured replacement.
Enyeama called time on his international career earlier than expected in controversial circumstances last year following a row with former coach Sunday Oliseh.
