Amokachi Must Not Disrespect Finidi  –Baruwa Warns

Former Nigerian international Abiodun Baruwa has issued a warning to Daniel Amokachi not to disrespect Super Eagles head coach Finidi George as they team up to work for the success and progress of the senior national team.

Recall that Amokachi was selected by Finidi to be part of his coaching crew as an assistant after his unveiling was confirmed by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) on Monday.

However, with concern raised by some Nigerians, Baruwa has advised Amokachi to show respect and support Finidi in whatever decision he takes.

“…I believe NFF will not interfere with what’s going on between Amokachi and Finidi,” he told TVC News.

“All they just need to do is to sit down together and work out the plan moving forward.

“What Amokachi needs to understand is that he needs to respect Finidi in whatever decision he’s trying to go for and just give him support, have his own opinion and at the same time support him as the chief coach.”

    Amokachi must know that finidi is his boss – Ikpeba

    Amokachi must not disrespect finidi – Baruwa

    If it is this glaring that this man is so insubordinate…..why is the NFF/sports ministry forcing him down Finidi’s throat.

    It’s not like the man even merits the position. He failed as U23 coach, he failed as CHAN coach, he failed as SE caretaker coach, losing to Uganda in Uyo. He was kicked out of the SE technical crew by Berti Vogts, he was shoved out of Enyimba’s technical crew by Maurice Cooreman for this same lack or respect. He has not done any reasonable coaching in a almost a decade….apart from carrying handbags of politicians….to merit a place on the SE at this precarious time and space we find ourself.

    NFF….why the fixation on having Amokachi on the SE bench, even when finidi has stated he doesn’t want him ..? What is in it for y’all.

      He is balancing the Northern quota. The North wanted him stupidly as it is there turn.

      He is a good coach from NPFL players testimonies. He did well with Nasarawa United

        He did what well with Nasarawa United and yet he was sacked half season. Please please memories are still fresh Amokachi has never succeeded in any coaching capacity even as a pundit he doesn’t even understand the technical aspect of the same game he played. Finidi has shut himself on foot by allowing the politician monitoring spirit in his team.

    It is not diplomatic talk or expression by coach Abiodun Baruwa , cause this talk will appear that there is a disaccord and disagreement between the two men , also will creat in future dispute and antagonism between them ; so Baruwa should have to say that ( I hope that new Super Eagles coaching crew should exert their efforts to take Super Eagles to a new era , that means they should make them competitive team, strong one as they have been before, so they should put all their minds togther to do this job excellently) .

  • I still don’t understand what Amokachi brings to the table. Even on commentary, he doesn’t exude intelligence or understanding of the game. He comes of as a brash person.
    He’s simply a political stooge to me. A selfish one at that. A good player in his day but never my favourite character. He should stay clear of Finidi’s way.

    Really Coache….You tell a good coach by testimonies of NPFL players….LMAOooo.
    Please how many of them….?

    Is it the Nasarawa Utd where he was sacked midseason or Enyimba where he was booted out for peace to return to the club…? Or Ifeanyi Ubah were he was fired after 8 games for poor performance and insubordination….??

    Is it the players of those clubs that can testify he is a good coach…? LMAoo. So as a coach if you are going for interviews for a coaching job, all you will right in your CV is that players say you are a good coach…?

    Infact reports (though unconfirmed) have it that he was always quarelling with Maurice Coreman in training while at Enyimba and went to scheme behind for Coreman to be fired, but in their wisdom, the management of the club (then under Anyasi Agwu) gave Coreman the team to manage for 5 games and Amokachi for 5 games and Amokachi’s 5 games were a disaster…..LMAooo….Anyasi at that point knew who should be sent away from the club between Coreman and Amokachi.

    It was this same insubordination that made Berti Vogts to ban him from SE training sessions and render him a kit carrier for the team, before he quit in fraustration

    Please stop this joke…!

  • Amokachi is rogue a crook and is a Bribe Taker that is it, Everything else does Not matter he was the one in Keshi’s Ears that brought about the idea of collecting Bribes from Agents to include their Players in the National team at the expense of more qualified and Meritted players. And After the Big Bosses Demise (God Rest his Soul) He Amokachi Turns around to throw the big boss under the bus and make himself look like an Unwilling party. The Man Amokachi is classless and A crook and his presence in the team for such a crucial Moment for Football in Nigeria literally as we are at a crossroads of Wether we will grow as a Powerhouse or become Minnows, (that is what will happen if we mis WC for 2 in a row at the hands of SA) Shows that NFF are against Nigeria’s progress in Football. NFF has never given a damn about Nigeria Football Dominance and this employment shows that. Mark it somewhere if with Amokachi there We are in for a dirty ride with Super Eagles and, my people prepare yourself for Frustrations when you start seeing the list of players included and the ones missing. Watch out.

    What can you say about a man Who speaks ill of players in Diaspora at every opportunity and uses them as scape goat every time Nigeria losses, yet has two boys born in Diaspora, show’s you the character of the man!

    This is the TRUE REASON why Nigeria has refused to truly become the giant of Africa.

    This tradition of exalting tribalism and godfatherism far above competence and professionalism. This indeed has truly hindered our dear Nation from moving forward. We can cleary see this “Nigeria factor” crippling effect in basically every single aspect of our society. God have mercy.

    We all know that Amokachi,though was a great footballer in his days, and has helped Nigeria to win trophies in time past, but again, we should remember that
    he has always been too heady (stoburn) as a person, and these has been clearly seen in all the teams he worked with both as an official or as a player.

    It is on record in the English game as the only player who stubbornly sub himself into a football match without the approval of his head coach. So, what are we talking about?

    I do hope the NFF officials will not shot themselves by forcing Amokachi on Finidi? Na person wen start fire, na him gho quench am ooooh!

    Anyways, lets hope that Amokachi is much more matured now and has changed his ways. I wish you all good luck.

  • The appointment of coach Finidi is good for our football but has been hindered by the political appointment of Daniel Amokachi who did not merit such position. He should tell us his achievement with any local club except been relieved of his post each time he acted or appointed as an assistance in clubs like Enyimba fc, Nasarawa Fc, Ifeanyi Ubah Fc and any other clubs and according to Dr. Drey which I believe and respect, he was sacked as U23 coach and CHAN Eagles. To most Nigerian, his appointment is political to favour a part of Nigeria and not necessary to add value to Nigeria football. I pray it works but I have my doubt about his association with Finidi. I hope he will maintain his role as assistance and not try to usurp Finidi’s role as a coach. God bless Nigeria.

    Slim shady , Amokachi,both men are political and sentimental appointees These two guys are not qualified to manage any of our national team. Amokachi is there to assist finidi, Pinnick Gusau to sell players.My Bet still stand on slim shady.

    When I listening to his commentary at the last Afcon, I knew nothing about the game. Up on till the semi finals, he kept on saying SE formation was 433. If he cannot differentiate game formation, I doubt he will have any tactics to impact to the team.

  • You are all wasting your time. I said it once, and will say it again. Nigeria will NOT qualify for the World Cup. The incompetence of the NFF and coaching is too glaring not to see.

  • Amokachie while selling and forcing players to buy some rogue wrist watches from him. The good thing is he can not do it to the caliber of player in the squad as presently constituted. My fear is he will divide the team and cause distraction from the task of qualifying for the world cup… Amokachie is too transactional…..

    NFF will use Amokachi to set finidi up

  • Kenneth 1 week ago

    SMH, we are all watching, finidi himself insisted on Amokachi, so he will in turn be a traitor, na wa for una in that country. The way you all just cook up negative stories really baffles me.

  • Dr. Drey 1 week ago

    For your information, I listened to Ifeanyi Udeze’s program online earlier today and Peterside Idah, Mobi Okparaku and one other ex-footballer all confirmed my story about Amokachi’s insubordination.

    So leave anyone to copy and paste my comments. Im not the one who made you so daft that nobody can copy and paste your own senseless comments on this forum…..LMAOoo.

    Omo ale jatijati

    You must show us proof the Finidi himself insisted on Amokachi o.

    And you must also show us proof that Nwakali was not kicked out of Porto, Arsenal and Huesca for poor attitude and indscipline…..LMAOoo.

    Devil wants to punish you tonight…..your cup is indeed full.

  • Coache 1 week ago

    All the pundits on this forum are sppt on about Amokachi. He might be the Amoneke that derailed the game against Ghana enroute Qatar.

    ON a lighter note, If God wants to promote a nan called FINITO, He makes sure those who will ANTAGONIZE FINIDI extremely busy quarreling with themselves about Amokachi.LWKMD
