Enyeama recalls being called “Black Mamba” by Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

Ex-Nigerian international Vincent Enyeama explained how Zlatan Ibrahimovic described him as a ‘Black Mamba ’ whenever Paris Saint Germain faced his then team, Lille.
Enyeama played against Ibrahimovic’s PSG eight times, with his team Lille unfortunately couldn’t record a victory against the Swedish giant’s side ( 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 .”
After spending about seven years with the club with over 164 appearances for the club, he was released by the club in August, 2018.
