If given the chance, former Super Eagles winger, Finidi George is willing to coach the national Under-17 team for free, he has reportedly told Nigerian Football Federation officials.
Being one of the 59 shortlisted for coaching jobs by the Nigeria Football Federation, the 46-year old was interviewed by the technical committee via telephone last week.
Score Nigeria quoted an official of the NFF to have said: “Finidi has told NFF officials he is willing to coach the U17s for free.
“He has already told the technical committee he is not disturbed about the poor finances of the NFF which may cause salaries to be delayed for several months.
“He said he is only driven to give something back to the country that made him and he believes he can impact what he has learnt working with age-group teams in Mallorca to make a difference with the country’s cadet team.”
Finidi ruled the Eagles right wing and Emmanuel Amuneke took care of the left wing during the country’s Golden Era.
Amuneke has since set a mark with the U17s – he won the FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile two years ago after he was assistant coach to the team who won the same competition in Abu Dhabi in 2013.
