Super Eagles vice-captain William Troost-Ekong has lauded the appointment of Finidi George as the head coach of the national team, expressing admiration for the legendary figure’s impact on African and Nigerian football, MySportDab Reports.

Reflecting on the transition from former coach Jose Peseiro to George, Troost-Ekong highlighted Finidi’s esteemed status in the football world, particularly for his illustrious career with Ajax and Real Betis.

“George Finidi is someone who is a legend. In African football, and Nigerian football, even here in Greece, whenever ex-Nigerian players are mentioned, Finidi’s name always comes up,” Troost-Ekong expressed, emphasizing the significant influence Finidi had during his playing days, especially at Ajax.

Troost-Ekong commended Finidi’s humility despite his remarkable achievements, acknowledging his recent success with Enyimba in winning the league.

“He is always very humble, too humble for what he has achieved. Everyone recognizes the work he did for Enyimba last year when he won the league,” Troost-Ekong remarked, expressing his delight at Finidi’s appointment as the interim head coach, now permanently at the helm.

With the Super Eagles preparing for upcoming World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic, Troost-Ekong, on the verge of recovery from injury sustained during the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, eagerly anticipates returning to action under Finidi’s guidance.

As Nigeria enters a new era under Finidi George’s leadership, Troost-Ekong’s praise underscores the team’s optimism and determination to achieve success on the international stage.
