The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has announced that the unveiling ceremony to formally present to the public, Mr. Finidi George, as the new substantive Head Coach of the Super Eagles will be held this morning in Abuja.

The NFF also said the Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Owan Enoh, alongside Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Mrs Tinuke Watti, President of NFF Alhaji Ibrahim Musa Gusau and the NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, will be among prominent personalities at the unveiling.

According to the NFF, George had turned down an offer to coach a second-tier team in Spain to return to Nigeria to lead two-time CAF Champions League winners Enyimba FC.

In his second year, he won the Nigeria elite division title with the People’s Elephant and has left the club with a chance of retaining the title this season, with six matches to go.

When George formally bowed out of the Aba giants days ago, Enyimba FC remained in third place on the NPFL log, with 53 points from 32 matches, four adrift of table-toppers Enugu Rangers and three off second-placed Remo Stars.

Meanwhile, Finidi was sent forth to his new post at a special farewell dinner organised in his honour in Aba.

Speaking at the event, the Super Eagles coach said he enjoyed his two years at the club and will remember his time and friends in Aba.

ScoreNigeria reports that he was presented with a commissioned painting of his portrait in Enyimba colours.
