Bamidele Mathew Aiyenugba is a Nigerian football (soccer) player currently with Bnei Yehuda of Israel. He was brought in as a replacement for compatriot, Vincent Enyeama, who was sold to Hapoel Tel Aviv. His name, Bamidele, means "Follow me home"
Dele Aiyenugba has been an understudy to Nigeria number one Vincent Enyeama at club level and continues to be his deputy in the national squad. Aiyenugba moved to Bnei Yehuda from Enyimba where he was regarded as the best penalty stopper in the team. It was not unusual to see him come on as a sub for Enyeama whenever the team had to play penalties.
Even though Enyeama’s departure from the Aba Elephants left room for Dele to grow, he has remained deputy in the Super Eagles.
He is well built and has sharp reflexes coupled with an intimidating stance that scares attackers.
With the present form of Enyeama, Dele might yet have to wait for his time to come in the national set up.
