Ahmed Musa Weigh Into Debate Over His Favourite Role After Scoring Twice As A Lone Striker

Ahmed Musa has given his opinion on his favourite role on the pitch after scoring twice for Leicester City in their 2-1 FA Cup win over Everton as a lone striker as opposed to playing on the wings.

Musa produced a superb display as a lone striker down the middle, rather than in his preferred wide role, and he hopes he can now secure a run in the side.

“It is a great feeling, not just for me but for all the team that we won the game,” he said.

“From the beginning of the game we had the feeling we could win.

“I am used to playing out wide but I will play any role the manager wants me to play.

“I have been playing that position for my former club so it wasn’t new for me (against Everton).

“I am used to playing on the wings, from the right, and down the centre. It is not difficult for me.

“Wherever the manager wants me to play, I will do my best there.”
