Super Eagles and Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa has described legendary Nwankwo Kanu as his childhood football hero.
Musa revealed this in a short video interview posted on the English Premier League official twitter handle on Tuesday.
"My hero is Kanu because I've been watching him since I was a little kid. He was very good," Musa said.
