Troost-Ekong admires Ajax legend Finidi George as role model

Posted : 07 May 2024

Super Eagles vice-captain William Troost-Ekong has openly expressed his admiration for newly appointed head coach of the Super Eagles, Finidi George.

The former Ajax star, who previously served as interim coach before his permanent appointment, was selected from a pool of candidates that included Emmanuel Amuneke, succeeding Jose Peseiro after his contract ended with the NFF.

Reflecting on his time under Peseiro and the transition to George, Troost-Ekong described Finidi as a legendary figure in African and Nigerian football, emphasizing his personal connection to him.

Troost-Ekong praised Finidi's impact at Ajax, where he contributed significantly to securing the Eredivisie title and continued his success at Real Betis in Spain, notably shining in the Copa del Rey final against FC Barcelona.

Additionally, Troost-Ekong commended Finidi's humility, despite his remarkable achievements, citing his recent triumph with Enyimba in winning the league.

As the Super Eagles gear up for their first matches under George's management in the World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic, Troost-Ekong, nearing recovery from injury, eagerly anticipates his return to action for Nigeria.
