Former Super Eagles forward, Finidi George says he would consider managing a team if the opportunity to do so arises.
The 49-year-old was a key member of the Nigeria team that won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations title in Tunisia.
Speaking to Brila FM, Finidi revealed he has had a coaching experience in Mallorca and would love to do what he considers a talent.
“We are ex-players, we are coaches, we had played this game and we know how to interact with players,” he said
“We also know how to manage them which is important as well, so if the opportunity arises, I would take it with open hands.
“I have been handling the youth players and it’s always good to do what you know how to do best, actually I have been an assistant coach in Mallorca,”
Finidi has also served as the director of international football at La Liga club Real Betis.
During his playing days, Finidi represented Nigeria in 62 games and scored six goals.
