“Nigeria takes precedence, and it’s imperative that you maintain regular playtime at your club while showing utmost dedication,” Finidi declared during his inaugural press conference as Super Eagles coach.

The NFF has awarded Finidi a two-year contract with the task of securing Nigeria’s qualification for the 2026 FIFA World Cup and clinching victory in the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations.

Refuting speculations of discord with players, Finidi has affirmed a harmonious relationship with the Super Eagles squad and dismissed rumors of any conflicts during his interim coaching stint, as reported by Complete Sports.

Despite alleged tensions involving players like Ademola Lookman and Sadiq Umar during international friendlies against Ghana and Mali in March, Finidi has asserted a professional rapport with the national team members.
