Pinnick throws weight behind Finidi George's candidacy of Eagle's job

Posted : 10 April 2024

A Former Nigeria Football Federation president, Amaju Melvin Pinnick, has thrown his weight behind Finidi George to become the Super Eagles coach.

The head coach of Enyimba International is among the coaches who have expressed interest in the vacant position of the national team.

Pinnick, who is a council member of FIFA, endorsed Finidi to excel as the coach of the Super Eagles.

"During his internship, there was a player who was once regarded as one of the best wingers in the world - Finidi George - one of the best wingers at a point - a player who had formal or informal training as a player under one of the best coaches in the world, Louis Van Gaal - a player who, at Real Betis, was excellent.

He was at Ajax, and if you know Ajax, they believe in developmental football, where they teach you how to control, trap, and play the ball again.

So he has those qualities, and in my opinion, we should support him."

"He played two friendly games, lost one, and made history - negative because Mali has not beaten Nigeria in over 40 years, and positive because Nigeria has not beaten Ghana in over 30 years.

In my opinion, I've seen him, I've worked with him, I brought him on when I was president as one of the assistant coaches.

He possesses virtues that we need in a coach. He has leadership, skill, and, most importantly, humility.

There's no baggage; if you look around Finidi, you won't see any baggage.

There's a lot of information and many things I know," he said.
