Leicester City Ahmed Musa International Future In Doubt After Row With Coach Over Captaincy


The international future of Leicester City star Ahmed Musa after his poor reaction to being strip off his role as assistant captain of the Nigeria national team.


Musa was replaced by coach Gernot Rohr as deputy captain shortly before the friendly game against Senegal, as the coach handed the skipper band to Ogenyi Onazi in the absence of regular captain John Obi Mikel.

The decision infuriated Musa who called the players behind the coach to tell them off his decision to step down as vice captain before even telling the manager of his decision.

Michael James who covered the Super Eagles while in London on behalf of Owngoalnigeria.com reports that the Leicester City star might have played his lack game for the team after requesting to leave the team’s camp before the game against Senegal.

” Something is definitely not right with Musa and Rohr. The way he left the camp on the grounds of family issues as claimed by Rohr is not true in anyway. He doesn’t seem happy with the coach after losing the vice captain role.


“Musa didn’t challenge Rohr openly but his reaction says it all. You know the Super Eagles coach is a very experienced man, so he is trying to play it down but I doubt if Musa will called up for future games.

” I gathered it all started from the game against Algeria, when Musa asked for his new car to be driven to the camp of the team before the game. It distracted the players as it became the main gist in the camp instead of the game.

” Then the Mosque incident happened just two days to the game. Musa has not conducted himself in a matured manner and it could cost him his spot in the team, regardless of his talents”.
