Former president of the Nigeria Football Federation and FIFA Council member, Amaju Pinnick has said ex-international, Finidi George has all the qualities to become the next coach of the Super Eagles.

Pinnick who made this known while speaking on Arise TV said Finidi has the leadership and humility to succeed Jose Peseiro on a permanent basis.

Finidi is among the frontrunners for the vacant position left by Peseiro, following the expiration of his contract at the end of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

“A player that was once regarded as one of the best wingers in the world. A player that played and like interned under one of the best coaches in the world Louis Van Gaal. At Real Betis he was excellent. At Ajax, if you know Ajax, you should know that they believe in developmental football. So, he has all the qualities. So, what do we need? This is my strong personal opinion.

“He doesn’t have to be reckoned with but he is a strong personality. And I’m sure Finidi will surprise us. I’ve seen it, I’ve worked with him, as president, I brought him up as one of assistant coaches. He has qualities like leadership, dexterity and most importantly humility.

“So, if we have someone who has played under some of the best coaches in the world and also coached at that level, also coaching the most successful club in Nigeria, I think we should build capacity around him,” Pinnick added.
