Ibrahimovic jokingly called me ‘Black Mamba’ – Vincent Enyeama


Former Super Eagles captain Lille goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, has recounted how Zlatan Ibrahimovic called him a ‘Black Mamba’ when Lille played Paris Sain-Germain [PSG] in France.

Enyeama faced Ibrahimovic’s PSG eight times and never recorded a win (five losses and three draws) conceding 16 goals.

The 36-year old was also in goal for Lille as they lost 2-1 to PSG in the Coupe de la Ligue final in 2016.

“Unfortunately, I never had a word with Zlatan on the pitch, you wouldn’t believe that,” Enyeama told Get French Football News.

“We had chats off the field, but before a match against PSG, he used to call me Black Mamba.

“Like ‘Oh, Black Mamba, you are here again? We are going to deal with you today and I will say ‘ok’ with a smile.

“We used to joke off the field, but on the pitch, he never said a word to me.”

Enyeama was released by Lille in August 2018 after seven years made 164 appearances for the club.
