The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), on Monday, unveiled former Ajax star, Finidi George as the coach of the Super Eagles.

Finidi was appointed two weeks ago, but the NFF did not reveal the specifics of the deal he signed.

On Monday, George signed his contract at the event where NFF President, Alhaji Ibrahim Gusau, and the Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Enoh unveiled him as the Nigerian national football team’s boss.

NFF also revealed that George would be assisted by his former Super Eagles teammate, Daniel Amokachi, and former Shooting Stars player, Benjamin James, who is based in Germany.

He will also have the services of Mehmet Ozturk, who will serve as an analyst, and the Netherland-based fitness trainer Chima Onyeike, who has worked in Russia, Germany, and Greece, will also assist Finidi.

Meanwhile, Olatunji Baruwa will return as the goalkeeper trainer.

According to a popular football analyst and journalist, Osasu Obayiuawana, George was only handed a one-year contract to lead the Super Eagles in their next campaign.

Obayiuawana queried the lifespan of the contract. He wrote on his X handle on Monday: “Wait a minute… @FinidiGeorge_FG was only given a ONE YEAR CONTRACT by @thenff to manage the @NGSuperEagles? Is this a joke or what”?

The new Super Eagles coach is expected to carry on with the preparations for the crucial 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin later in June.
