Finidi George: NFF speaks on banning Osimhen following explosive outburst


The Nigeria Football Federation has refuted claims of banning Napoli forward Victor Osimhen from representing the Super Eagles.

Reports of Osimhen’s exclusion from the national team circulated online on Wednesday.

NFF General Secretary Mohammed Sanusi clarified that there have been no actions taken to ban the talented forward.

“The NFF hereby implores the media to join hands with the body to positively resolve issues and then focus on the big picture all the time, rather than needlessly escalate certain matters. There was no official communication from the NFF, yet some persons have gone to town to talk about a ban on Osimhen from the national team. This is not good at all,” he told

“Our focus presently is to resolve all matters around the Super Eagles and be able to look ahead with confidence to the 2025 AFCON qualifiers and the remaining six matches of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualification series.

“This is not the time to spread falsehood and foul the public space the more.”
