Finidi George has been appointed as an Assistant Coach for the Super Eagles as Nigerians await the announcement of a new Head Coach for the three-time African champions.
The Super Eagles has been without a gaffer following the disengagement of Austin Eguavoen’s led technical crew last month.
Eguavoen and his crew lost the 2022 World Cup ticket to Ghana on away goal rule following a 1-1 draw at the Moshood Abiola Stadium in Abuja.
As approved by the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), Finidi George will be the second Assistant Coach in the Super Eagles, while Salisu Yusuf will be the first.
“The NFF Executive Committee has also approved the recommendation of the Technical & Development Sub-Committee for the new Head Coach to work with Coach Salisu Yusuf (whenever he is available from Super Eagles B/U23 Team duties) as 1st Assistant. Former Nigeria international Finidi George will be 2nd Assistant, with Usman Abdallah as 3rd Assistant.”
The 50-year-old is currently the Coach of Nigerian Professional Football League side Enyimba and they are occupying 7th position on the table after 22 games played.
