    The most talked against league is set to have the captain of SE.The same standard by Mr Rohr on Home base players should also be applied here because musa is now a home base player

     
  • Oh no our captain is gone , just 28yrs of age , are you telling me the truth

    Isn’t this what I have been saying here? Wetin Oldman Sidon see for distance… Pikin climb tree him no go see am. Our people say, them no the tell blind man say rain the fall… I saw this coming! It is highly commendable… it shows hunger and humility on the part of Ahmed Musa… this is now a valid professional ground to continue to be part of the Super Eagles, right now, if coach Rohr invite him and start him ahead of anyone coming from Europe now… no one will raise an eye brow or say anything. This is how to be leader by example… get involved at Pillars and keep your fitness tight. I have no more issues with Ahmed Musa hence forth… It’s not every aspect of the local game that is bad but it can be seriously improved. One love…

    No No No Captain Musa

    Are you telling me that at 28 no Asian, Qatari, or decent European club is willing to take a chance on the super eagles captain? It’s obvious West Brom wasn’t impressed by his performance rather than their excuse of financial reasons. Musa has paid his dues to the National team a great player in his prime and in his right element but at this point I can’t say much but Kudos to him for atleast trying to stay active and in shape. Rohr will have some serious decisions to make before the qualifiers.

    I don’t think that is a bad idea from Musa,
    Bcos, he has nothing to provide to anybody.. just keep fit!

    And is a credit to our local league

    An interesting development We will now have a “former foreign-based home-based” in the Super Eagles. Let’s see if Musa can make any difference and help improve the quality of football in Nigeria.

    To God be the glory. This is a perfect move for Musa.

    Did I not say that before now? I am not doing all I’m doing for myself but I am doing it for my country, Nigeria.

    Yes I said it and he, Musa have to find a short term deal in the NPFL to keep his dream of bn in the Super Eagles hope alive.

    I’m very happy for you Musa. This is not new to me. Late Rashidi Yekini did it and why not, Musa can do it too. This is very encouraging.

    I am not not coming on CSN to put anybody down. Whoever that is saying the truth about Super Eagles, they call them anti Rohr.

    As long as NFF and Oga Rohr are doing well with Super Eagles, I will applaud them but if they refuse to do the right thing at the right time then, I will tell them the truth of the matter including Oga Rohr followers.

    The Afcon in Cameroon is the hope of Oga Rohr and if he wins the trophy, he will continue with the team but if he doesn’t then, Amunike, Egbo and Enyeama should be on standby.

    We have the team and the squad we have is always ready to go. Musa is doing whatever it takes to make Nigerians happy once again but we have to be sincere with ourselves from now on so that the gaffer have to put more effort whenever Eagles is playing. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

      lol you don add Enyeama join prospective coaches? lmaooo guy rest please.

    Musa is above 30. That’s why over lying about age is bad. That’s why the likes of christiantus can’t even play for Nigeria.

     
  • Marvelous 4 months ago

    I will still stand by him, he ia a good baller. He has paid his dues for the eagles.

     
  • GLORY 4 months ago

    I honestly wanna praise Musa’s humility/dedication to the game, not looking down on our league. People might easily conclude, he’s done this just so he can be relevant to SE, but is that anything bad? On the flip side of things, isn’t this what our retiring foreign based footballers should be doing? Now Musa coming back to play for Kano pillars will definitely attract more fans/interest to every game pillars plays. And who says Musa cannot play for SE again, if he hits another career purple patch while playing for pillars? Sometimes, we just have to be very very objective before condemning. WELL DONE AHMED MUSA.

      You just spoke my mind @GLROY. I don’t understand why people are saying No no no. Mtchew

       
  • If AHMED MUSA (one of the SE player that was initially groomed by NPFL) can do this then what stops our EX from swallowing their pride and willingly accepting to manage one of the NPFL club?

    Instead of sitting in their parlor blaming Rohr, why can’t they bring home all the wealth of experience they have acquired while they were playing in eauropean clubs?

    Just an opinion though….

    • Musa is on a downward trend, he is just reaping the mistake he made by moving from Leicester in England to Saudi Arabia. Not many football talents rise from that fall. From Robinho, to Diego Costa to even in Africa – Shaun Bartlett and the likes. He has retired himself from good football. This is what you get when you don’t apply common sense to your own future. He was after Saudi Money, and has collected it in full. Now he is paying for his poor decision. I hope he gets overlooked by Gernot Rhor.

    Shame to all those terrible agents who only want to sell Nigerian players outside the country. Ahmed Musa has opened the way for foreign based Nigerian players to come back home. It will be a blessing for Nigeria if a player of Musa’s stature goes to the world cup with the tag of homebased.
    Ndi homebased players are not good for the national team. Una see your life so. No condition is permanent in this world. SATANIC AGENTS WITH HELLISH MINDS SHOULD HENCEFORTH DESIST FROM SELLING NIGERIAN PLAYERS TO BACKWATER LEAGUES. THERE IS NO PLACE LIKE HOME SO WE SHOULD ENCOURAGE MORE PLAYERS LIKE AHMED MUSA TO COME BACK.

     
    • I strongly believe that Ahmed Musa has seen better days in football. Honestly I wish him well, but I think he is reaping the rewards of moving from England to Saudi Arabia. The quality of football is different. I pray he gets back to his best, but this rarely happens in global markets. When a footballer goes back to his roots, that’s the end. It happened to Robinho, Diego Costa, Shaun Bartlett and many more. That was their end. Nobody says choosing money us bad, but you can’t do both, choose money in your career as a footballer by going to a lower league and still want to get back to a top league and perform. Its not possible. Even of recent example is Odion Ighalo.

    A good decision to keep his fitness while having one eyes in securing a foreign club in the summer.
    I think Rohr must have had a heart to heart talk with his captain about getting active even though it has to be from a local team.
    It’s obvious Musa is a very big part of Rohr’s plans going forward and all he has to do to remain relevant or part of the team is to have a club and it doesn’t matter what club.

     
  • My own fear in all these is the security of Musa travelling up and down our local roads where people perceived as rich are being kidnapped. Nigerian football teams still travel by road, sometimes at odd hours in this clime. Someone has given the example of Yekini but we all know what obtained at that time, security wise, is different
    Musa should think twice on this. Not playing for SE is not end if life. Safety first Musa, we love you.
