The Nigerian, who spent last season on loan at Maccabi Tel Aviv, returned to the starting lineup and made a number of impressive stops as Les Dogues began their Ligue 1 campaign with a 1-0 win at Stade Pierre-Mauroy.
After the match, Girard was full of kinds words about Enyeama and insists he has no problem with the 30-year-old being his first-choice keeper.
"Regarding Vincent Enyeama, he only had two stops to make and he did both very well. This is the mark of great goalkeepers," Girard told reporters.
"Personally, I feel comfortable in the area."
Divock Origi scored 13 minutes into the game to give Lille the win.
