Osimhen Faces NFF’s Sanction Over Outburst Against Finidi



Finidi George, Victor Osimhen

The Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) is set to initiate disciplinary proceedings against Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen over his recent outburst against former coach Finidi George.

Osimhen had lashed out at Finidi on social media after reports emerged that the former coach had questioned his commitment to the team.

According to sources within the NFF, the federation’s president, Ibrahim Muse Guseu, has already spoken to Osimhen about his behavior, and Finidi has also reached out to the player to clarify the situation.

However, Osimhen’s response has been deemed unsatisfactory, and the NFF is now considering taking action against him.

A board member of the NFF revealed that Osimhen’s outburst was deemed “improper conduct” and that the federation will not condone such behavior from any player, regardless of their status.

The board member stated that Osimhen’s actions were “a bad example” and that the federation needs to take a stand to maintain discipline in the team.

The controversy began when Finidi allegedly stated that Osimhen and other Super Eagles players appeared not committed to the team.

Although Finidi has denied making such statements, Osimhen responded with a scathing attack on social media, which has been widely criticized by fans and former players alike.

Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Idah Peterside has also weighed in on the issue, stating that Osimhen must apologize or face the consequences, including being forced out of the team.

Peterside described Finidi as a legend and stated that Osimhen’s behavior was disrespectful and unacceptable.

The situation has added to the already strained relationship between Finidi and the NFF, which has been deteriorating since reports emerged that the federation was seeking to appoint a foreign coach to replace Finidi.
