Super Eagles and Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen, has reacted angrily following a statement credited to Coach Finidi George, saying he chooses the games he wants to play and that there is complete breakdown of discipline in the team.

Osimhen took to social media to pour out his anger without reservations saying, he has lost the respect he had for Finidi, while laying curses on anybody who believes whatever rubbish’ they hear about him.

Addressing what he claimed transpired before the dismal outing in the two qualifiers against South Africa and Republic of Benin, the former Lille forward said he called the coach after his MRI test and that he offered to come to camp to talk to and be with the boys but that the coach refused.

He took exception to being singled out and rained abuses on anyone who chooses to believe whatever they hear about him, insisting that everyone knows he plays his heart out whenever he is playing whether for the national team or his club

“I knew something like this will come up. Immediately I finished my MRI, I called Finidi immediately he was on the phone. I also called one of my guys to do a video, while I was talking with the doctor and Finidi, because I knew things like this will come up.

“The respect I have for this man, I don lose am.’ I called Finidi, I told him let me come to camp and talk to the boys and stay with them he said no, I have to be with the family oh this oh that, wetin I go do? I go live my life the go,” he said

Crisis is brewing between Finidi George and his employers Nigeria Football Federation, with Finidi accusing the Football house of failing to give him the needed support.

This is even as he was quoted, stating that it was impossible to sanction some players who belong to some “big men.”

He made the submissions while meeting with NFF chieftains, and the Sports Minister, John Enoh, in Abuja to review the Super Eagles’ poor 2026 World Cup campaign after they held South Africa to a 1-1 draw in Uyo, before they were shocked by lowly Benin 2-1 in Abidjan.

Finidi also used the poster boy of Nigerian footballer, Victor Osimhen, to drive home his point that the country’s top stars are not fully committed to the Super Eagles.

Osimhen was not available for the two all-important World Cup qualifiers, with an official explanation that he was injured and sidelined for four weeks.

There are strong indications that Finidi George may indeed throw in the towel after just two competitive matches, especially after he emerged that the NFF has concluded arrangement to hire a Foreign Technical Adviser to partner with him in the remaining world cup qualifiers and beyond.
