Super Eagles striker Emmanuel Emenike has sensationally told Fenerbache coach Vitor Pereira that he is a Muslim.
The striker failed to join the squad up for breakfast on Saturday, prompting the Portuguese to probe his absence on why he didn’t join up with the squad in the morning: “I’m fasting,” Emenike reportedly told the coach according to Turkish daily Fanatik.
Pereira however replied: “You’re not a Muslim,” insisting that Emenike is a Christian. But in the response, the former Spartak Moscow player did not back down.
“I became a Muslim, I am a Muslim,” he continued to claim.
Emenike is yet to feature for Fenerbache in their two pre-season games so far.
