‘Osimhen should apologise’ — Ex-Eagles goalie Idah blasts star over Finidi comments

Former Super Eagles goalkeeper, Peterside Idah, has replied Victor Osimhen over his public rant against Finidi George.

Osimhen in his response to a report on social media where Finidi allegedly questioned his commitment to the national team disrespected the coach and hurled curses at fans.

It would be recalled that the former Lille of France striker pulled out of the Super Eagles 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and the Benin Republic.

The Super Eagles picked just one point from the two games and now face the danger of missing out on a place at the Mundial.

Idah said the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, should prevail on Osimhen to apologize to Finidi.

“He (Osimhen) needs to come outside and apologize for the things he said to Finidi, Peterside said in a short video on X.

“Finidi George is a legend, You don’t just widen your mouth and say things that are unpalatable. If you have issues with the man, pick up your phone and call him. That’s what responsible people do.

“Osimhen has just shown a bit of irresponsibility, and that’s unexpected. I think the NFF should call Osimhen and ask him to apologize. He has to apologize for saying things.”
