Nigeria Seeks New Coach: Finidi George Departs Amidst Controversy

Nigeria’s quest for the 2026 FIFA World Cup faces a significant obstacle following the departure of head coach Finidi George.

The Super Eagles’ recent struggles, including a draw at home and a loss away, have prompted the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to make changes within the coaching staff.

However, the manner of George’s departure has generated controversy. In a recent interview, George accused the NFF of a lack of transparency.

He claims to have learned of his dismissal through a phone call after a crucial team meeting, highlighting a significant communication breakdown.

This ultimately led to his resignation.The NFF has yet to comment on George’s allegations.

However, their focus now shifts to finding a new coaching structure that can effectively guide the Super Eagles through the remaining World Cup qualifiers.

The team must overcome these recent challenges and demonstrate their resilience to secure their place in the global tournament.
