NFF debunks Victor Osimhen Super Eagles ban after Finidi George tirade

Contrary to reports suggesting that Victor Osimhen had been banned from the national team, the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) has now said Osimhen is part of the super Eagles team and was never banned, Newspremises reports.

The reports stated that, Osimhen was banned from the national team over disrespectful comments he recently made about former Super Eagles boss Finidi George.

The NFF while debunking the claim described it as an outright falsehoods that should be disregarded.

NFF General Secretary Dr. Mohammed Sanusi has moved to dismiss these rumours, expressing amazement at the false claims circulating online.

“The NFF has neither instructed a process nor has a process been concluded to ban the player from the National Team,” he said in a statement.

NFF General Secretary Dr Mohammed Sanusi has moved to quash these rumours, expressing amazement at the false claims circulating online.

“The NFF has neither instructed a process nor has a process been concluded to ban the player from the National Team,” he said in a statement.

Osimhen enjoyed a season of mix-fortune in the Serie A following a poor title defence for Napoli this season after firing them to the title under new manager Luciano Spalletti.

The 25-year-old’s return to the Super Eagles setup will be a major boost for the Nigerian side as they look to mount a serious challenge for a place at the 2026 World Cup in the USA, Canada and Mexico.

With Finidi gone and a foreign technical adviser expected to be appointed, NFF chiefs will be hoping the Osimhen situation can be resolved positively in time for the upcoming qualifying matches.

Pulse Sports understands that while their relationship may have been strained, the door remains open for the in-form frontman to link up with the national team once again as they look to move on from the brief Finidi era.
