OPINION: Why the NFF Should Consider Finding a New Coach for the Super Eagles

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) took a bold step by appointing Finidi George as the new coach of the Super Eagles. However, after just two matches, it's clear that things are not going as planned. As much as it pains to say, the NFF should consider finding a new coach to lead the team forward.

OPINION: Why the NFF Should Consider Finding a New Coach for the Super Eagles

Finidi George's tenure has been marked by unclear strategies, puzzling player selections, and ineffective in-game decisions. The team looks lost on the field, and the lack of direction is evident. Modern football demands a coach with a clear vision and a well-defined plan, and unfortunately, Finidi hasn't shown that he can provide this.

Moreover, Finidi's decisions on who plays and who doesn't have raised eyebrows. Leaving out important players without explanation and relying heavily on inexperienced ones has hurt the team's performance and raised doubts about his decision-making skills. A coach must be able to make tough decisions and justify them, but Finidi's choices have been baffling.

During matches, a coach needs to make quick and smart decisions to turn the tide in their favor. Finidi has struggled with this, and his substitutions and changes have often made things worse. The Super Eagles are a top team in Africa, and they deserve a coach who can make effective decisions under pressure.

The pressure to succeed is high, and Finidi seems to be struggling with it. International football doesn't allow much time between games and tournaments, and the NFF can't wait, and hope things will get better. They need to act quickly to bring in a coach who can turn things around before it's too late.

Some may argue that it's too soon to sack a coach after just two matches, but the problems with Finidi's leadership are too serious to ignore. The NFF needs to think about the future success of the Super Eagles and consider bringing in a more experienced coach who can provide direction, make effective decisions, and handle the pressure of coaching a top team.
