Osimhen Should Face Ban for Disrespecting Finidi – Peterside - Beyond Boders

Osimhen Should Face Ban for Disrespecting Finidi – Peterside

Former Nigerian goalkeeper, Idah Peterside, believes Victor Osimhen should be banned from the national team if he does not apologize to coach Finidi George; this comes after Osimhen’s outburst on social media.

In a video shared on X (formerly Twitter), Peterside criticized Osimhen’s actions, calling them disrespectful and unacceptable.

“I think action should be taken, or he should be banned from playing for the national team. If we allow this kind of thing to continue, it would not augur well for Nigeria. The men who have served and given everything to our great country. So sanity must be brought to our football. He (Osimhen) needs to come outside and apologize for the things he said to Finidi,” Peterside said on social media,” Peterside stated.

“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,” he added.

Beyond Boders recalls that the issue started after Finidi voiced his frustration about the lack of support from the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) during a meeting in Abuja.

He claimed that some players, including Osimhen, were undisciplined and protected by powerful people.

In response, Osimhen went live on Instagram, expressing his anger and saying he had lost respect for Finidi. He insisted that respect should be mutual and promised to share proof of their conversation to clear his name.
