Finidi George Reacts to Victor Osimhen’s Outbursts on Injury Allegations

Former Super Eagles coach Finidi George has responded to Victor Osimhen’s viral video on social media, in which he denied accusations of faking an injury to avoid participation in the 2026 World Cup qualifiers.

Recall that Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen attacked George on Saturday, June 15, for blocking him from attending the national team camp and talking with his teammate.

In a trending video, the Nigerian star said he had lost respect for the immediate past Super Eagles coach. He added that George had details of his injury and blocked him from speaking with fellow teammates.

Why Osimhen tackled Finidi George

Finidi George had claimed he was not receiving adequate support from the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF). He added that some players are connected with big men in the governing council and are difficult to sanction.

This is after he had lost his first two matches as the Super Eagles coach, attributing the failure to a lack of commitment from the players.

Osimhen lashed out at the coach, stating that he has lost respect for him.
