‘You are wrong’ – Anichebe reacts to Osimhen’s comment on Finidi

Former international Victor Anichebe says Victor Osimhen was wrong in his public criticism of former Super Eagles head coach Finidi George.

Osimhen missed Nigeria’s recent 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic due to injury.

The Napoli striker openly expressed displeasure with Finidi for the statement the coach allegedly made concerning the injury.

Reacting to a video shared by former Super Eagles media officer Colin Udoh, Anichebe criticised Osimhen for making the matter public.

“This is something we really lack in Nigeria. We just love negativity and drama. VO was wrong to come out publicly. I’m sure he understands this now, but in the heat of the moment, it’s difficult. This could’ve been done in private, even though I fully understand he doesn’t want anyone to tarnish his image and commitment that he has worked tirelessly to maintain,” the former Everton striker said.

Anichebe also criticized the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and called for the disbandment of the soccer house.

“That being said, the whole federation is a complete and utter mess, completely clueless, lacking foresight, no clue about football. What was their hiring process? Does anyone even know? Nepotism at its finest. How can results be achieved with a leaderless bunch at the helm? The whole organization needs to be disbanded and started again,” he added.
