365Daily -Barely weeks after his resignation as the coach of Nigeria’s senior national team, Super Eagles, Finidi George has been appointed as the technical manger of Rivers United.

This was announced by the club in a statement released on Wednesday, July 3, 2024, with an unveiling set to follow on Thursday.

It stated, “Rivers United Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Finidi George as our new Technical Manager.

”Finidi brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our team, having had a distinguished playing career spanning over fifteen years.

“His impressive credentials include winning the Africa Cup of Nations with the Super Eagles in 1994, the UEFA Champions League with Ajax in 1995, and the Nigeria Premier Football League with Enyimba International FC in 2023.

“As a coach, Finidi has demonstrated his ability to lead teams to success, and we are confident that he will bring his expertise and passion to our club. We are excited to have him on board and look forward to a successful tenure under his leadership.”

Before his brief stint as the Super Eagles head coach, Finidi managed Enyimba, leading them to their record-ninth NPFL title in 2023.

A native of Port Harcourt, he began his career with Calabar Rovers, Iwanyanwu Nationale and represented local club Sharks FC – which was merged in 2016 with Dolphins to form Rivers United – for two seasons before embarking on a stellar European career.
