The 53-year-old tactician recounted how he snagged the job with the 9-time NPFL champions, encountered challenges and surmounted them.

He was full of praise for the team for giving him the platform to showcase his God-given talent, noting that it really prepared him for bigger challenges.

Finidi wrote; “After three good years I will be leaving Enyimba, I was asking for something less but God has given me a bigger one, I didn’t know when I was applying for the U-17 job which I applied for twice I kept my cool and I decided to join the Aba giants but how God wanted it I have been giving the Super Eagles job.

“My first season at Enyimba was a difficult one because of some challenges but my second was better and hopefully this season will be better than the last season.

“It’s quite unfortunate that I won’t finish this season with Enyimba, I would have loved to but that isn’t possible at this point in time.

“I want to thank you all because for me Enyimba is like a family, I’m going but I won’t forget you all but definitely I will soon come to Aba to watch Enyimba play because my duty now is to make a team with foreign and home-based players.

“It’s quite emotional for me because I knew when I came here I came with my son but he left after one year because it wasn’t easy for him but I knew what I was looking for which I wanted to prove myself here.

“I’m happy and at the same time am sad that I am leaving Enyimba, want to thank you all for the support. It hasn’t been easy but Enyimba has really prepared me for bigger challenges, Aba isn’t an easy place to coach.”
