Former Nigeria star, Victor Ikpeba has thrown his weight behind his ex-teammate, Finidi George, to take over the reins as Nigeria’s permanent head coach.
The former Borussia Dortmund forward is impressed of his former teammate’s performance against Ghana and Mail during the international friendly.
With Peseiro’s contract expired, George stepped in as the interim coach for Nigeria’s recent friendly games during the March International break.
Nigeria under Finidi George defeated arch-rival Ghana for the first time since 2006 but sadly lost their second game Mali.
Despite the loss, Ikpeba has thrown total support behind the Enyimba coach.
“I am happy with what Finidi is doing with the Super Eagles,” he said on SuperSports’ Monday Night Football show.
“I am in the system and I know what he’s doing. I am not the decision-maker, I am one of the people who will advise the NFF, but it’s looking good for Finidi.
“From what I have seen from the players’ comments, it’s looking good for Finidi George.”
