Joseph Enakarhire (born 6 November 1982) is a Nigerian football defender, who is currently without a club.

His main asset is his incredible stamina and adaptability (he can operate as either right and centre back).


Club career

Born in Warri, Enakarhire impressed at a young age at Royal Standard de Liège, before joining Sporting Clube de Portugal in 2004–05,[1] where he eventually became first-choice. However, after just one season, he was sold to Russia's big-spending club FC Dynamo Moscow.[2]

Unsettled, Enakarhire was loaned, in August 2006, to French League outfit FC Girondins de Bordeaux, as another former Sporting defender, Beto, left for Recreativo de Huelva, also on loan.[3] He was relatively used during the season and, after Bordeaux decided against signing him permanently, he joined Greece's Panathinaikos FC on a season-long loan.[4]

In July 2009, Enakarhire had an unsuccessful trial with FC Metz.[5]

International career

An international since 2003, Enakarhire appeared with the Super Eagles at the 2004 and 2006 African Nations Cups, being an undisputed starter in the latter, as Nigeria finished third, only conceding three goals.
