Finidi Wants Strong Start with Enyimba

Finidi George, newly appointed Enyimba head coach, is looking forward to a perfect start to his coaching stint at the eight-time Nigeria Professional Football League champions.

The former winger, who earned 62 caps for the Eagles, just signed a multi-year deal with the Aba giants putting an end to speculations about his future. He took over from Fatai Osho, Enyimba’s former Head Coach.

Finidi George is faced with a daunting task of building a squad that can challenge for honours at all front, and has gone to work by leading Enyimba to a pre-season tour.

In an interview with press men, Finidi revealed that a strong start is key to achieving a successful season with the Elephants.

‘We will make sure that we start on a clean slate, it’s always important to start very well because if you don’t start well doubts may arise if the team is good enough or not. The immediate goal here is to start very well and prepare, and make sure we start winning games from the onset,’ He said.

Finidi’s first test will come against Diambers FC of Senegal in the second preliminary round of the CAF Confederation Cup.
