Emmanuel Emenike has reportedly told his coach at Fenerbahce, Vitor Pereira, that he is now a Muslim.

The Super Eagles striker was missing when the squad had breakfast on Saturday, prompting the manager to ask his whereabouts.

“I’m fasting,” Emenike reportedly told Pereira, according to Turkish daily Fanatik.

Pereira replied: “You’re not a Muslim,” insisting that Emenike is a Christian.
In response, the former Spartak Moscow made it clear that “I became a Muslim, I am a Muslim.”

Emenike is yet to feature for the Turkish club in their two pre-season games so far.
