Retired Super Eagles keeper, Vincent Enyeama said he will be on
hand to groom Burkina Faso international goalkeeper, Herve Koffi, for
the French Ligue 1 side, Lille.
Koffi, 20, was signed on by Lille on Wednesday from Ivorian giants,
ASEC Mimosas, on long term contract after he helped Burkina Faso to a
third place finish at the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon back in
“Koffi is a fantastic young goalkeeper and I’m very proud to see
another African come to the club,” Enyeama told BBC Sport on Thursday.
“It’s heart-warming to see a young African goalkeeper earn a move to Europe; it says a lot about his qualities.
“My advice to him is that he should focus on what has brought him to France, keep working hard and concentrate on his job.
“I’ll be available to help him settle and give him all the necessary support he needs.”
Enyeama who joined Lille in June 2011 and has made 164 appearances,
said he was delighted with the arrival of another African goalkeeper.
