Finidi George resigns as Super Eagles Head coach

Finidi George has resigned as head coach of the Super Eagles.

He made this decision on Saturday, following the Nigeria Football Federation’s (NFF) announcement of plans to hire a foreign technical adviser.

The resignation was confirmed by former Eagles media officer, Toyin Ibitoye, on his X account.

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

Finidi, who took over the role on April 29, 2024, replacing Jose Peseiro, whose contract ended in February, had a brief tenure. He managed a 1-1 draw against South Africa and a 2-1 loss to Benin Republic in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.
