According to a report from media outlet Brila.net, select members of the Nigerian team, including Sadiq Umar and two others, are reportedly discontented with Finidi’s decisions. Their dissatisfaction primarily stems from being sidelined in both matches played during the March international window.

In particular, the report highlights Sadiq Umar’s refusal to shake hands with Coach Finidi and his departure from the pitch after being left unused throughout the Ghana encounter. Umar, who missed the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) due to injury, has faced challenges in finding form this season, with just three goals in 35 appearances, as per data from Fotmob.

This reported discord among the Nigerian team emerges shortly after several Super Eagles players, including Kenneth Omeruo and Kelechi Iheanacho, publicly endorsed Finidi to continue as the team’s manager, expressing satisfaction with his leadership.

Adding to the discourse, former Nigerian midfielder Mutiu Adepoju, in a recent statement reported by Sports Brief, voiced support for Coach Finidi, emphasizing the importance of continuity for the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and urging them to maintain faith in the 52-year-old.
