Despite not having played professional club football since October, Ahmed Musa has been called up to the Super Eagles, and has been elected captain of the team.

Musa is yet to find a new club since leaving Saudi Professional League club Al Nassr in October 2020, and he hasn’t played a competitive match since the Super Eagles’ 4-4 draw with Sierra Leone on November 13.

His selection for the Super Eagles ahead of the upcoming vital AFCON Qualifiers has ruffled some fans’ feathers.

Gernot Rohr, the coach, has now defended his decision, saying that Musa is still the team captain and that he will only practise and will not participate in the upcoming games against Benin and Lesotho.

 

“Musa is our captain, and he is a part of the team though he won’t play because he has not been active, but we want to assist him to train and he will also help our team as we prepare for these two important matches,” Rohr told the Caf website.
