Eagles Assistant Coach Finidi Caught Dragging Pepe’s Shirt With Moses Simon (Video below)



A clip is currently making the rounds on social media showing the moment assistant Super Eagles coach Finidi George looked sad after Real Madrid legend Pepe handed Moses Simon his shirt.

Pepe, who currently plays for FC Porto, was in action for 90 minutes as Portugal thrashed Nigeria 4-0 in an international friendly.

Two first-half goals from Bruno Fernandes and a goal each by Goncalo Ramos and Joao Mario in the second half were enough to hand the World Cup-bound team an emphatic win.

Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro, appointed in May, led the side against his home country, and they were thoroughly spanked.

After the game, players from both teams exchanged pleasantries, however assistant coach of the Nigerian side Finidi George was disappointed when he asked Pepe for his shirt. Cameras captured the moment Nigerian winger Moses Simon met with the centre-back to swap shirts, but Finidi appeared in a manner like “I wanted to ask him too”.

And Nigerians have taken to social media to blast Finidi, who won the Champions League with Ajax back in 1995.

One said:

“Finidi George shamelessly begging for Pepe’s shirt is so embarrassing to watch.”

Another added:

“These average players & their clueless coach lost scandalously to Portugal, rather than feel remorseful, Finidi George (Assistant Coach) became a Beggar overnight fighting for & dragging Pepe’s shirt with Moses Simon… Utterly disgraceful.”
