Former Nigeria international Finidi George is keen to coach the Super Eagles in the future.

The 49-year-old had a successful career as a winger having won the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Super Cup with Dutch giants Ajax Amsterdam.

George, who was also a key player for the Super Eagles, helped his country win the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) title.

“We are ex-players, we are coaches, we had played this game and we know how to interact with players,” George told Brila FM.

“We also know how to manage them which is important as well, so if the opportunity arises, I would take it with open hands.

George served as an assistant manager at current Spanish La Liga side Real Mallorca.

“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,” he added.

George has also served as the director of international football at La Liga club Real Betis.

He retired having played 62 games for the Super Eagles and scored six goals.
