Former Super Eagles and Kwara United goalkeeper Dele Aiyenugba has revealed the reason Ahmed Musa’s service is important in the Super Eagles.
Coach Jose Peseiro has left out Musa from the Super Eagles recently and no reason was given for his absence.
Aiyenugba during his chat with Punch correspondent emphasised that he doesn’t need to play in every game but his presence will affect the team positively.
” 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.
