“I just want to continue to help the team in goals this season and for the next few years that I will be here.”

He explained that it took just a phone call from the club for him to extend his contract by two years.

“They called me and it was just a phone call. It was just a phone call, no negotiations or stuff like that. It was so easy for me to say yes.

“I love this club which was why it was easy for me to sat=y yes at first and to even come back after my loan in Israel.

Enyeama added that he is happy at the club – currently in second position on the league table and dreamed of the extension even before it was offered.

“I am happy here, I like Lille and the people who live here.

“This contract extension is then made quite naturally. I waited, I dreamed, I wished with all my heart because I want to be part of this project on time. I have full confidence in this management team.

“In a word, I would say that this club is like my family, a place where I feel at home.”

He also had a word for the club’s fans – “I love you all, thank you for your fantastic support everyday.”
