Ugochukwu Michael "Hugo" Enyinnaya (born May 8, 1981 in Warri) is a Nigerian footballer who currently plays with Meda.


Enyinnaya started his career with Eagle Cement, where he marked his debut at the age of 16. He was then loaned out to FC Ebedei, being successively signed in the summer of 1998 by Belgian Second Division side Molenbeek. Noted by Carlo Regalia, scout of then-Serie A club Bari, he was then signed in 1999 by the galletti in a 200mln bid, and initially joined the Under-20 Primavera squad, where he formed a striking partnership with a young Antonio Cassano. He marked his Serie A debut on October 17, 1999 in a home match against Torino. On December 18 he was first featured in the starting lineup together with Cassano in a home league match against Internazionale, ended in a shocking 2-1 win for Bari thanks to goals from Enyinnaya (a 30-meter shot during the 7th minute) and a late winner by Cassano.

Enyinnaya later failed to gain a spot in the regular lineup, differently than Cassano. On 2002 he was loaned to Serie B side Livorno, where he scored only two goals in 17 matches. He returned to Bari in 2003, but failed to impress, being loaned again, this time to Serie C1's Foggia, on January 2004. On July 2004 his contract expired, and Enyinnaya successively joined Górnik Zabrze under request by then-chairman Marek Koźmiński. Adaptation difficulties however influenced his performances, and Enyinnaya played only seven times with the Polish side. He then left Gornik, joining Poland II Liga club Lechia Zielona Góra in 2005 and later on Odra Opole.

In January 2009 Enyinnaya returned to Italy by accepting an offer from amateur Eccellenza club A.S.D. Anziolavinio. In July 2009 he successively moved to another Eccellenza club, Meda.[1]
