What Kenneth Omeruo told said about Finidi George

“I don’t know about everyone, but for me and a few others he did well. He was short staffed, only one coach working as an analyst, training without an assistant” Omeruo stated during an interview on Brila Fm’s Big Interview.

“I like that he kept the system played at the AFCON, but if I were him against Mali I would have played everyone; give every player a chance to play and maybe things would have turned out differently and he would be a strong contender for the job.”

Kenneth Omeruo further expressed confidence that the Super Eagles could qualify for the 2026 World Cup despite starting their campaign poorly.

“We started poorly and that’s on us as players, but I do believe we have the quality to qualify for the world Cup. However, we need to sort the matter of the head Coach real quickly because June is just around the corner.”
