His first official game as Enyimba head coach will be the CAF Confederation Cup second preliminary round fixture against Senegalese side Diambers FC in mid-October.

“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 told the club’s media after signing his contract.

Chairman of Enyimba, Felix Anyansi Agwu stated that the arrival of George 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.”

      Hehehehe UBFE.

      They all sat down in their parlors carrying around “ex-international” title, hoping jobs will be thrown at them with their blank CVs and telling us lies they are not getting jobs because of their skin colour……until we started pointing out their mates like Olofinjana, Mike Obiku, Ndubuisi Egbo, Rahdi Jaidi, Mbaye Leye, Micheal Essien, who are also black African exinternationals like them but who have jobs because they have done the needful for themselves….plus the likes of Henry Makinwa and Kennedy Boboye who chose to head home to start their careers since they couldn’t get jobs over here.

      At least the frequency of granting interviews with CSN will reduce a little bit now. Lets hope the rest of their gang will follow suit and focus the energy they use in gossiping about Rohr on starting and developing meaningful careers for themselves….LMAOoooo

    … That’s how you guys thought Akwa Ibom stadium at Uyo was still in Super State until recent picture from the game of Akwa United against the Algeria team revealed it is now a browny patched-out bumpy and untendedly abused playing turf like any other in the country. Hahaha… We no serious as a nation.
