Reasons  Finidi George Was Named Super Eagles Coach – NFF Reveals

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has provided details on why Finidi George was appointed as the new coach of the Super Eagles. Finidi’s significant experience and recent achievements were central to the decision. Following his role as an assistant to the former coach, Jose Peseiro, Finidi has become familiar with the team’s dynamics, contributing to his readiness for the top position.

Ademola Olajire, the NFF’s Director of Communications, outlined Finidi’s qualifications in a statement.

He emphasized Finidi’s transition from a successful playing career to coaching, noting his strategic preparation and growing list of accomplishments in coaching. Finidi’s tenure as an assistant coach under Peseiro during the AFCON qualifications and the tournament itself, where Nigeria finished second, was particularly highlighted as a critical factor in his appointment.

Olajire also praised Finidi’s decision to return to Nigeria to start his coaching career, despite opportunities abroad. His successful stint with Enyimba FC, where he won the league title in his second season and is on track to defend it, was noted as proof of his capability and leadership.

With this background, Finidi is now tasked with leading the Super Eagles through the upcoming 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against South Africa, with high expectations resting on his shoulders.
