One of the star players of the Super Eagles, Emmanuel Emenike, has disclosed that he is now a Muslim and currently observing the Ramadan fast, which Muslims are commanded to partake in yearly.

According to a Turkish website, Fanatik, the player made this known after he had failed to join the squad up for breakfast on Saturday and was confronted by his Fenerbahce FC coach, Vitor Pereira, on why he failed to show up.

And when Pereira confronted him saying, “You're not a Muslim,” insisting that Emenike is a Christian, the former Spartak Moscow player maintained that “I became a Muslim, I am a Muslim.”
