Finidi George, the former Super Eagles head coach, has swiftly redirected his attention to his new role with Rivers United following a brief and tumultuous tenure with the national team.

The 53-year-old football icon, who resigned from his position as Super Eagles head coach last month, expressed readiness to embrace his new challenge with Rivers United. His departure from the national team came amid the Nigeria Football Federation’s decision to appoint a foreign technical adviser over him, despite a mixed record of one win in four games.


Speaking at his unveiling as the new head coach of Rivers United, Finidi George emphasized his commitment to making an impact in the Nigerian league.

Finidi’s swift transition underscores his resilience and dedication to continuing his coaching career, now with a firm focus on revitalizing Rivers United in the Nigerian Premier Football League.
