Enyimba FC have announced the signing of ex-Nigeria international Finidi George as head coach.

The former Ajax and Real Betis winger joined the eight times Nigerian champions on a two-year contract. He replaces Fatai Osho whose contract expired at the end of August.

Chairman of Enyimba Felix Agwu said George’s arrival represents a new chapter for the club.

“I believe that the time has come for us as a club to open up a new chapter, a chapter that will showcase the many hardwork that has been going on behind the scene and usher in lots of success.

“For us to have engaged a coach like Finidi George who is coming from Europe is a clear statement of intent about our aspirations,” Agwu said.

After signing the deal, Goerge said, “I have to say it’s a great opportunity for the club to have this confidence in me. I want to thank the chairman, the members of the board, and the supporters for even thinking about me. On my own part, I will be here to just work and do the job. It’s never going to be easy but I’m here to work and make the team win.”

George made 62 appearances for the Super Eagles. His best time in club football was at Ajax where he won the UEFA Champions League in 1995.
