Two-time CAF Champions League winner Enyimba FC of Aba has reportedly appointed ex-Nigerian international George Finidi as the team’s Technical Adviser.
The 50-year-old will replace coach Fatai Osho who led the Aba Elephants to a second-place finish in the recently concluded 2020-21 season of the Nigeria Professional Football League.
Finidi was a key member of the Ajax team that won three Eredivisie titles, the 1995 UEFA Champions League, the European Super Cup, and the Intercontinental Cup.
He was capped 62 times by Nigeria’s Super Eagles from 1991 to 2002, winning the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations in Tunisia with the Super Eagles.
Finidi retired from active football in 2004 and has since pursued his dreams of being a coach by acquiring a UEFA B license.
Considered one of Nigeria’s greatest wingers, Finidi made his debut for Nigeria in 1991, in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Burkina Faso, providing three assists for Rashidi Yekini and scoring once in a 7–1 rout.
Finidi helped the national team win the 1994 edition of the tournament in Tunisia, and also achieved one second and two third-place finishes.
In the 1998 tournament in France, Finidi also played in all the matches, with Nigeria meeting the same fate at the hands of Denmark. He had already vowed to quit international football prior to the competition, and earned a total of 62 caps.
