Finidi George resigns as Super Eagles coach

Finidi George

Finidi George has reportedly resigned from his role as the head coach of the Super Eagles.

Finidi took the decision on Saturday, days after the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), announced moves to bring in a foreign technical adviser.

His exit was confirmed by former Eagles media officer, Toyin Ibitoye, on his X account.

Ibitoye wrote: “News just in: Finidi George @FinidiGeorge_FG has resigned from his @NGSuperEagles manager position.”

Finidi was only appointed on April 29, 2024, to replace Jose Peseiro, whose contract expired in February.

During his very brief tenure, the former Enyimba boss oversaw a 1-1 draw with South Africa and a 2-1 defeat to Benin Republic, both in the 2026 World Cup qualifying series.

Finidi’s only win while in charge of the Super Eagles came on March 22, in a 2-1 friendly match against Ghana in Morroco as an interim coach.

He, however, followed it up with a disappointing 2-0 loss to Mali four days later.
