Emmanuel Emenike Denies Converting To Islam, Says I’m Very Much A Christian

The Fenerbahce striker, Emmanuel Emenike is upset with his
coach especially for ‘leaking’ his personal information to the media. According
to the striker, he was missing on Saturday morning when others ate breakfast
and when his coach asked him why he was not there to join others, he simply said
he was fasting. Emenike is upset that his coach mistook his fasting for being a
Muslim one and wondered why he had to give the press a wrong perception of his
fast. He however disclosed to the press today that though he missed his
breakfast at the club because he was fasting, what he observed was a Christian fast,
and not the on-going Muslim fast. What he said;

“The report that I am now a Muslim is absolute rubbish
and false. I want the source of the news to re-address it. I have no reason to
convert to Islam even though I have lots of Muslim friends. Is there any big
deal observing fasting during the (Muslim) fasting period?” he asked
“I am very disappointed seeing the news going viral
because it is something I told my coach in our conversation when he asked me a
question and never said I have become a Muslim. Fasting is not what everybody
should know that you are doing and it’s very sad seeing this in the

“I am Catholic, a strong one for that matter, and I
came from Christian home. I don’t discriminate against anybody and I believe we
are all equal in the presence of God, so what is the big deal in fasting? Does
he know how many time I fast to get closer to God before the fasting periods?
It’s really sad because I don’t see it as a big deal,” he told AfricanFootball.com.
