2023 AFCON: Super Eagles Need Ahmed Musa’s Leadership -Aiyenugba 


Former Nigeria’s Super Eagles goalkeeper Dele Aiyenugba has canvassed for the return of Ahmed Musa to the Super Eagles.

The Sivasspor of Turkey winger has recently been left out of the national team and he has missed the last 5 matches involving the team.

Kwara United goalkeeper while speaking made it clear that Musa’s leadership is still vital for the team.

” When I joined the national team, our legend Nwankwo Kanu was not playing. He was usually subbed on but was always there as the captain. We still need Ahmed Musa on the team.

“It doesn’t matter if he holds a starting position or not. A leader in the team has much to offer on and off the pitch.

“This is the AFCON, and you need the right mentality. So, when you have players like Musa who even started from Nigeria, he will be able to understand everyone’s differences and carry the entire team especially when you are having a blend of home-based and foreign-based players”, he said.
