Give Finidi Super Eagles job, ex Super Eagles player urges NFF Published By: Paul Dada

Edema Fuludu, an ex-Nigerian international, has urged the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) to offer fellow Super Eagles player, George Finidi, the senior national team job.

Jose Peseiro vacated the post after leading Nigeria to the final of African Cup of Nations tournament in Côte d’Ivoire which the Eagles lost to the hosts 1-2

Fuludu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Saturday that with Super Eagles 2-1 victory over Black Stars of Ghana in a friendly match on Friday, Finidi had shown that he was the right man for the job.

According to him, the leadership of NFF should look within the shores of the country in the appointment of a new gaffer for the Eagles.

“Finidi is calm, composed and having coaching qualifications to handle the team perfectly.

“As far as I am concerned, he is not someone that can be easily influenced.

“He is capable of handling the players having understudied the former foreign coach Jose Peseiro,” he said.

The ex-international said he was very happy over the victory against Ghanaian team by the Super Eagles.

He added that such victory would also improve the Eagles’ team spirit and raise the world’s ranking.

“I have been saying it that employing indigenous coach for super eagles will bring the best out of the our national players because he will understand the team more than the foreigners”, he said.

NAN reports that Super Eagles interim head coach George Finidi has praised his players following the team’s victory against Black Stars at the Grand Stade de Marrakech on Friday night.

It was Nigeria’s first win over Ghana in 18 years.

NAN reports that the coach of the Black Stars Otto Addo, highly of Finidi’s Super Eagles ahead of the game.

The Ghanaian coach had said he has taken his time to highlight Nigeria’s quality players on the wings and other players who could make a difference.
