Finidi George reveals why he is scared of coaching Nigerian clubs

Former Super Eagles winger, Finidi George has given reasons why he is scared of coaching clubs in the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL).

The former Ajax, Real Betis, Ipswich Town and Mallorca winger says it is possible he could return to coach a club in the NPFL one day but insisted that he needs a guarantee of prompt payment of salaries for him to accept such offer.

He stated that such poor attitude by Nigerian club owners of not paying coaches their wages had been an issue in the NPFL over the years.

George has applied for a role as one of the National Team coaches but says if the conditions were right he could coach a club in the Nigerian League, but he is also of the opinion that the NPFL clubs may not be able to meet his conditions to become one of the coaches in the local leagues.

Only Austin Eguavoen, Ben Iroha, Emeka Ezeugo, Daniel Amokachi, Samson Siasia, and Emmanuel Amunike from the Super Eagles class of ‘94 have attempted to coach in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
