ABIA STATE – Nigerian football club based in the city of Aba, Enyimba FC has debunked reports of the dismissal of the club’s head coach Finidi George.
In a statement from the club’s sporting director Ifeanyi Ekwueme, he acknowledged that some crew members were dismissed, but the head coach was exempted from the exercise.
The crew members were however asked to re-apply for their positions within the next 48 hours if they wished to continue in their roles.
Speaking on this, Enyimba’s recently appointed chairman Kanu Nwankwo said,
“We told everyone to re-apply except Finidi. The coach has done well and will stay to continue his good job. Finidi is our coach and we are happy with him”, he added.
Finidi guided the “people’s elephant” to a historic ninth NPL title less than a month ago. He is reportedly negotiating a new contract with the Aba giants.
