Finidi, Amuneke Will Replace Peseiro As Super Eagles Coach


Enyimba head coach Finidi George has been touted as a replacement for Super Eagles manager, Jose Peseiro.

Finidi’s former Super Eagles teammate Emmanuel Amuneke is also a front runner for the job.

Current handler Peseiro’s current will run out at the end of this month.

According to ESPN, the Portuguese will be asked to take a significant pay cut to remain in charge of the team.

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) will offer Finidi or Amuneke the job if Peseiro’s contract is not renewed.

Finidi won the Nigeria Premier League title with Enyimba in the 2022/23 season.

The former winger is currently working as one of the assistants to Peseiro.

Amuneke on other hand has served as an assistant coach in the Super Eagles in the past.

The 52-year-old guided the Golden Eaglets to the title at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2015.

He has also managed the Tanzania national team and worked with clubs in Nigeria, Sudan, Egypt as well as Zambia.
