We didn’t put Finidi on one-year contract with Super Eagles – NFF

President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Ibrahim Gusau has debunked reports that newly appointed coach of Super Eagles, Finidi George was committed to a one-year contract.

Recall that Finidi was officially unveiled by the NFF earlier this week, and it was reported in some sections of the media that the coach penned a one-year contract with the option of another year.

Addressing the claims, Gusau made it known that the 53-year-old former Enyimba boss will remain in charge of the Nigerian national team at least till the end of the 2026 FIFA World Cup Cup.

He said; “I don’t know where the one-year contract information emanated from, all I know is that, as far as our contract with Finidi is concerned, he is going to be in charge of the team till the end of 2026.

“So I don’t think 2026 is going to be a one-year contract,” Gusau said on Soccer Africa, a popular TV Show in South Africa.

“The key thing is, in every contract, there must be some indices and some targets that you must put in place for somebody in other for him to get optimal performance.

“And the first target is to qualify the team for next year’s Nations Cup and to get to at least the semi finals of the Nations Cup, as well as qualify the team to the World Cup and to get us the target of playing in the quarter finals of the World Cup.

“So these are the main targets we put in place for him in the contract, and by the grace of God, we are working hard to see how we can achieve that”.
