Finidi pens farewell message to Enyimba

Finidi George has penned an emotional farewell message to Nigeria Premier Football League champions Enyimba.

Finidi was recently appointed Super Eagles head coach after previously serving as an assistant under Jose Peseiro.

The 53-year-old will now leave the Aba Giants to concentrate on the Super Eagles job.

“After three good years I will be leaving Enyimba, I was asking for something less but God has giving me a bigger one, I didn’t know when I was applying for the U-17 job which I applied twice I kept my cool and I decided to join the Aba giants but how God wanted it I have been giving the Super Eagles job,” Finidi stated in his address.

“My first season at Enyimba was a difficult one because of some challenges but my second was better and hopefully this season will be better than the last season.

“It’s quite unfortunate that I won’t finish this season with Enyimba but I would have love too but that isn’t possible at this point in time.

“I want to thank you all because for me Enyimba is like a family, I’m going but I won’t forget you all but definitely I will soon come to Aba to watch Enyimba play because my duty now is to make a team with foreign and home-based players.

“It’s quite emotional for me because I knew when I came here I came with my son but he left after one year because it wasn’t easy for him but I knew what I was looking for which I wanted to prove myself here.

“I’m happy and at the same time am sad that am leaving Enyimba, want to thank you all for the support it’s hasn’t been easy but Enyimba has really prepared me for bigger challenges, Aba isn’t an easy place to coach.”
