Why I left Enyimba for Super Eagles job — Finidi George

Super Eagles head coach Finidi George has denied reports that he will be combining his new role with managing Enyimba FC. Finidi was appointed the new gaffer to succeed Jose Peseiro following the Portuguese tactician’s departure in February....Read The Full Story Here ▶

Prior to his appointment, the 53-year-old served as an assistant to the former Saudi Arabia coach for 20 months while doubling as head coach for NPFL side Enyimba FC.

He was later appointed as interim coach, leading the team for friendlies against Ghana and Mali in March before his substantive appointment on April 29.

Speaking on his affiliation with Enyimba following his official appointment, the former Real Betis man maintained that he is fully committed to the Super Eagles, which is a more demanding job.

“I don’t think it is wise to continue with Enyimba, knowing the level of work needed for them to retain the league title, and at the same time, carry on with the strenuous job of running a quality Super Eagles team,” Finidi told Afrik-Foot.

“I don’t think it will be wise for me to handle Enyimba and the Super Eagles at the same time. I am not a superman.

“As you rightly said, this is a difficult job, and running Enyimba is also very difficult. I am only human. I can’t be stressing myself trying to win the league again and then battling with the Eagles to qualify for the World Cup; I can’t do both. So it’s wise that I follow the Super Eagles, which is a bigger challenge with a bigger commitment, which makes it a bigger job.

“We are talking about the entire country, Nigeria’s team, with over 200 million watching. I didn’t need the NFF to prompt me because I know the kind of load on the ground, and that’s why I spoke with the Chairman of Enyimba Football Club about the situation, which he understood very well. So that is not a problem at all.”

His first major test will come against South Africa in a World Cup qualifier on June 7 before taking on Benin Republic three days later.
