Meanwhile, Super Eagles legend Vincent Enyeama has been hailed by Chelsea goalkeeper Edouard Mendy who claimed that the Nigerian star played important role in his goalkeeping career.

Mendy played incredible role for Chelsea in the Champions League semifinal against Real Madrid which helped Tuchel and his wards to reach the final.
The Chelsea goalkeeper explained that Vincent Enyeama's active games years back at Lille gave him the confidence.
