Finidi George Resigns As Nigeria’s Super Eagles Coach

Finidi George Resigns As Nigeria's Super Eagles Coach

In a shocking turn of events, Nigerian football has been left reeling after the news broke that Finidi George, the recently appointed head coach of the Super Eagles, has resigned from his position. The 53-year-old was appointed just last month, but his tenure was marked by a dismal start, with the team earning only one point from their first two World Cup qualifiers.

According to reports, George’s decision to step down comes as a surprise, especially given the Nigeria Football Federation’s (NFF) recent confirmation of a search for a foreign technical adviser to help improve the team’s performance. The exact reasons behind George’s resignation remain unclear, as neither he nor the NFF has released an official statement.

The former Nigerian international, who played for the country in the 1994 African Cup of Nations-winning squad, took over the reins of the Super Eagles in May. However, his brief tenure was marred by a lackluster start, which has left the team’s chances of qualifying for the 2026 World Cup hanging in the balance.

George’s departure leaves a leadership vacuum within the national setup, putting pressure on the NFF to find a suitable replacement quickly. The federation will need to act swiftly to prepare the team for upcoming crucial fixtures, including the remaining World Cup qualifiers.

As details emerge regarding George’s resignation and its implications for Nigerian football, one thing is clear: the future of the Super Eagles hangs in the balance.
