Former Nigerian international Victor Anichebe has expressed disapproval over Victor Osimhen's public criticism of former Super Eagles head coach Finidi George. Osimhen, who missed the recent 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic due to injury, openly voiced his displeasure with George’s comments regarding his injury.

Anichebe, reacting to a video shared by former Super Eagles media officer Colin Udoh, condemned Osimhen’s decision to address the issue publicly. “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 remarked.

In addition to addressing the Osimhen-George controversy, Anichebe also took aim at the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), criticizing its operations and calling for a complete overhaul. “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.

Osimhen's public comments and Anichebe's sharp critique of the NFF have sparked a broader conversation about professionalism and governance in Nigerian football.
