'Khune Can Make It In Europe'

In an exclusive interview with Soccer Laduma, a Nigerian goalkeeper revealed that he thinks Kaizer Chiefs’ Itumeleng Khune has what it takes to make it in Europe.

Vincent Enyeama, formerly of the Nigerian national team, has won several accolades during his time in Europe, as well as on the African continent, which includes the CAF Champions League, Africa Cup Of Nations and the Israeli Premier League.

Speaking exclusively to Soccer Laduma this week, the 37-year-old shared his thoughts on one of Chiefs’ shot-stoppers, saying that Khune could succeed abroad the same way that he did.

“Of course, if I succeeded in Europe, then he (Khune) could, too. Everyone could succeed – it all depends on your state of mind. Are you ready to put in the hard work? Are you prepared to adapt in an environment where the temperature is minus 14 degrees and you have left Mother Africa where the lowest can only be 16 degrees?” he said.

“Your state of mind and the ability to work hard are the keys to success in Europe. Your last game qualifies you to play the next game. You cannot afford to put a foot wrong, not for a single day! You must be consistent every day and take your game that little notch higher.”

“If you slack just one little bit, you are out, no matter how good you are or how big the name that you carry in your country. It counts for nothing in Europe. It’s tough, but if you are prepared to work hard, you can make it,” Enyeama added.
