Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama says Daniel Akpeyi has what it takes to succeed in Europe.
Akpeyi has been linked with clubs in Europe and Asia following an excellent season with Kaizer Chiefs in the Absa Premier League.
The 33-year-old has established himself as the first choice goalkeeper at the club.
Akpeyi, who has overtaken Itumeleng Khune on the pecking order, has kept nine clean sheets in the league so far.
“I know him (Akpeyi) personally. I have been in the same national camp with him. I expect Idah Peterside and the media in general to hype up the players, not just Akpeyi,” Enyeama told said.
“Often the media focuses on your faults, but they need to hype up the players, encourage and assist them to grow. You have the power to build players in a responsible way. I read reports that he (Akpeyi) has had an exceptional season with Kaizer Chiefs.
”Akpeyi can succeed at the highest level. The same applies to (Itumeleng) Khune. I wish them both luck and if they can look at me and consider that I succeeded in Europe, then what stops them from succeeding as well?”.
