Finidi George resigns as Super Eagles coach

In a surprising move, Super Eagles head coach Finidi George has resigned from his position in the Nigerian national football team, the Super Eagles.

Sources close to the experienced manager indicate that his decision stems from a perceived lack of support from the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF).

This development comes shortly after Finidi George expressed frustrations regarding the support he expected but did not receive from the NFF as well as a lackluster performance of the team in the World Cup qualifiers.

Alongside George’s resignation, another significant change looms within the NFF hierarchy. Austin Eguavoen, currently serving as the NFF Technical Director, is reportedly on the verge of being removed from his position. A reliable source within the NFF has confirmed this pending change, highlighting a potential shake-up in the organization’s leadership.

Recent discussions within the NFF have also hinted at a broader restructuring initiative involving the Technical and Development Sub-Committee. This move suggests a strategic realignment aimed at enhancing the effectiveness of Nigeria’s football development efforts.

George’s departure marks a setback for the Super Eagles, who had seen him as a promising figure to lead the team forward.
