Victor Osimhen blasts Finidi George for questioning his committment to Super Eagles

Victor Osimhen has publicly criticized former Super Eagles head coach Finidi George in a fiery Instagram Live session. SportsRation reports.

The Napoli striker, known for his dedication to the Nigerian national team, did not hold back as he addressed claims that Finidi would not beg him to play for the Super Eagles.

Osimhen’s outburst comes in the wake of his absence from Nigeria’s 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against South Africa and Benin Republic, which reportedly led to tensions between him and the coaching staff. The controversy escalated following Finidi’s alleged comments that he would not plead with Osimhen to join the team.

During the 10-minute tirade, Osimhen expressed his deep disappointment and loss of respect for Finidi, emphasising the breakdown in their relationship. He stated:

Victor Osimhen balsts Finidi GEORGE

“I will post the pictures and the screenshots I had when I spoke to Finidi George because you all believe that someone keeping quiet because he is a footballer, ogun kill anybody, any of you that believe (I didn’t want to play for Nigeria). You can talk nonsense. I have lost respect I have for that man (Finidi), I have lost it all. I swear to God I have lost it now because why? I called him, told him to allow me come to the camp to be with the boys, I have all these recorded, to come talk to the boys.”

This outburst reveals the strained communication and trust issues between Osimhen and the former coaching staff, potentially contributing to Finidi’s resignation. The 25-year-old’s frustration highlights his commitment to representing Nigeria and his discontent with the previous coaching setup’s handling of the situation.

Osimhen’s passionate remarks add another layer of complexity to the current state of Nigerian football, already impacted by Finidi George’s departure. The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) now faces the task of addressing these internal issues to restore harmony within the national team.
