Super Eagles goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi won’t be leaving South Africa club, Kaizer Chiefs for any club in Europe according to the keeper’s representative, Mohammed Lawal.
Lawal was responding to the encouraging words from former Super Eagles safe hands, Vincent Enyeama who said Akpeyi had what it takes to shine in Europe.
“It’s wonderful that he made the comments he made in the interview about him. For a well-respected goalkeeper like him to come out and say those words about Daniel is great. Daniel is very ambitious. He is working very hard and I think it is a dream for every African player to play in Europe. But that’s not Daniel’s priority right now. He is focused at Kaizer Chiefs and is looking forward to helping Kaizer Chiefs to achieve their objectives,” added the representative.
“Vincent Enyeama is a well-respected goalkeeper in Africa. He has done well for himself. He has been playing in Europe for a while. He did well in Israel and moved to Lille in France. Vincent is one of the few players who succeeded in the French Ligue 1. I think he was the first goalkeeper in the French League to have about 11 consecutive clean sheets. Daniel spent time with him in the national team, before his retirement and obviously he looks up to him,” said Lawal.
Akpeyi has kept nine clean sheets so far this season.
