Tension in Super Eagles camp as Amokachi rejects being Finidi George’s assistant

There is tension in the Super Eagles’ camp, as Daniel Amokachi is yet to show up, with only a few days to the 2026 World Cup qualifier against South Africa.

Amokachi’s absence has raised questions about his role as one of Finidi George’s assistant coaches.

However, sources tell Waploaded that he has rejected the contract offered by the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF.

This comes amid speculations that Amokachi and Finidi are not on good terms.

Amokachi was one of the assistants announced by the NFF alongside Benjamin James, Olatunji Baruwa, Chima Onyeike, and Mehmet Ozturk.

But there are suggestions that the NFF imposed Amokachi on Finidi.

This led to NFF President, Ibrahim Gusau, debunking the rumours.

“I am very happy when we unveiled Finidi to Nigeria.

“The NFF Technical Director put all the names on the list and they chose the best they felt would work.

“All the names you saw as assistants to Finidi were chosen by him,” Gusau said.
