Finidi George Resigns As Super Eagles Coach 

Super Eagles coach Finidi George has reportedly resigned from his position as the national team manager.

This development has plunged the future of the three-time African champions into uncertainty.

George, a former Nigerian international and a member of the iconic 1994 Super Eagles squad that won the nation’s second African Cup of Nations title, took over as head coach last month.

His resignation comes as a major surprise after the Nigeria Football Federation confirmed the search for a foreign Technical Adviser following a poor run by the Super Eagles in the 2026 World Cup Qualifying series.

No official statement has been released by the NFF or George to confirm his resignation or regarding the reasons behind this shocking decision.

The 53-year-old was appointed last month ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic.

However, just one point from six in his first two official matches left the Super Eagles’ 2026 World Cup hopes in the balance and his job on the line.

His potential departure leaves the Super Eagles without a permanent manager, creating a leadership vacuum within the national setup.

The NFF will now face immense pressure to quickly find a suitable replacement to steady the ship and prepare the team for upcoming important fixtures, including the qualifiers for the 2026 FIFA World Cup.
