Osimhen hits back at Finidi George

Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen has hit back at former Super Eagles head coach, Finidi George over his comments on his commitment towards the national team.

Osimhen missed the Super Eagles recent 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic due to injury.

Finidi stated that the striker could still have managed to play the two matches.

The 25-year-old has now fired back at the former winger.

“I asked Finidi George to allow me stay with the players in the camp, but Finidi asked me not to bother that I should stay with my family,” he reacted on Instagram.

“Now after two bad games, everybody is now blaming me.

“I know how many injuries I’ve played with for Nigeria and I played my heart out but after two bad games, everybody is attacking me.”

Blueprint reports that Finidi resigned from his position as Super Eagles head coach on Saturday.
