Legit.ng - Nigeria news.

FCT, Abuja - Shehu Dikko, a member of the FIFA football stakeholder committee, has said the appointment of Finidi George as the Super Eagles head coach by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is "the most appropriate decision".

According to the top football administrator, formerly a NFF vice-president, Finidi's appointment will stabilise the Super Eagles team, considering he has been part of the senior national team set-up for over a year.

Dikko told Legit.ng:

"It is the best and most appropriate decision at this time to appoint Finidi to head the Super Eagles. It provides stability and consistency to the team as Finidi has been with the team as first assistant coach for the past 20 months working closely with Jose Peseiro. Thus he has a clear understanding of the team structure, the players, their strengths and weaknesses and what needs to be done to improve.

"With the critical matches now at hand, Finidi is thus the safest bet, and I must congratulate NFF President, Ibrahim Gusau, and the board for this bold decision."

Olajire described the alleged appointment of Amunike as Super Eagles coach as fake news.
