Musa: I’m Not Leaving Al Nassr This Summer

Musa: I’m Not Leaving Al Nassr This Summer

Nigeria captain Ahmed Musa has ruled out leaving Saudi Arabia Professional Football League club Al Nassr this summer.

Musa has been linked with a move to Turkish club Fenerbahce this summer despite a below par campaign with Al Nassr.

The 27-year-old has failed to register a goal in 17 league appearances for Al Nassr this season.

“There are rumours linking me away from the club,” Musa told Supersports’ Carol Shabalala during an Instagram Live chat.

“I love playing for my team (Al Nassr) and I will love to finish my contract with the club.”

Musa joined Al Nassr from Premier League club Leicester City in 2018.

    Please enjoy yourself where you are and make enough money for yourself because there is life after football. That this stage in your career, if China come knocking with bugger offer, my brother move.thanks….. that is all I have to tell you.
    You have made a name for yourself and also set a record as the highest 9ja goal scorer at the world cup

     
    • And to add to that he can leave the eagle for more younger players like Ejuke too thankyou

    Remember you have to improve as well if you still want to play further for the national team.
    I doubt if you can up your game playing in Saudi Arabia.Leagues like that are lacking of required skills,quality and without that quality you are not adding to what you have already.This is not very good for your international team.
    Having said that,you are a disciplined professional footballer who started playing at a very young age and has maintained a good level which speaks high of your professionalism.
    The super eagles fans understands the circumstances you were surrounded with at Leicester also the need for regular football which Leicester couldn’t offer at the time and thankfully got aplenty in Saudi Arabia.Playing regular football again put you in a great form to post eye catchy performances at the world cup and Afcon respectively.
    You are gradually getting to a retirement age and need more cash than wasting on the bench of a European team i empathise with you.But have this in mind,at a point the fans may gradually erase your national team achievements from their minds and may start losing patience and see no need of your relevance to the team,especially now a young Ejuke and Bazee are knocking on the door.

      Spot on @greenturf. I think the only thing still keeping Musa in the team is Captaincy and Experience (so-called).

      If he doesn’t start banging goals in that Low Saudi League or better still come back to Europe and continue to prove his worth, I will suggest the Captain Arm-band should be passed on to Ekong straight while we give space for more hungry and more talented Attackers/wingers such as Ejuke and Bazee et al. We can’t be wasting a space in an area where we are so spoilt for choice in the name of Experience/Captain

       
  • We have ..
    Chuckwueze
    Kalu
    Simon
    Dennis
    Ejuke
    Bazee
    Iwobi(who can be drafted to the wings
    With the arrival of Ejaria)
    Others are …
    Onyekuru
    Lookman
    Okereke..
    …Musa might soon give the same announcement as Victor Moses soon.
    …cos what Musa have left is just speed and occasional goals..which all these players also have.
    If the coach still believe in him, I’m cool with that anyways.

     
  • Top marks Greenturf and Chairmanfemi. I hope this wouldn’t be taken the wrong way by fans of Ahmed Musa but my issue is his deplorable goals-to-games ratio in the Saudi Arabian Premier League.

    0 goals in 17 league games in Saudi Arabia for a winger in a expected to score goals for Nigeria is a worrying statistics.

    I actually have no problems with Musa playing in Saudi Arabia so long as he is paving the streets of the league with golden goals.

    At some point in the more competitive Russian league, Musa was a 1 goal per 3 games winger. Now he has gone 17 whole games without finding the back of the net in Saudi Arabia.

    If he goes on this way, he might soon be labelled a Saudi league flop!

    Although he hasn’t found the back of the net, Musa has missed 6 glorious opportunities to register his name on the score sheet.

    And like Chairmanfemi said, with options propping up aplenty for Super Eagles particularly on the flanks, it becomes to look odd accommodating a Saudi league struggler when we have wingers scoring regularly in France, Spain, Belgium and Holland.

    I guess the only positive aspect of this is that, whereas Musa is not scoring but he is at least providing assists – 5 thus far this season.

    I had expected Ahmed Musa to paint the Saudi League with goals but that hasn’t happened however, he is determined to stay in the league and hopefully make a full 360 to turn things around. I believe he can, after all, Musa is famed for scoring some truly breathtaking goals.

    Anyone who scores one goal should be invited, we are not even looking at his overall tally, this Bazee is scoring his first goal in 4years. And as for Musa someone also voiced that if he wants to continue enjoying the oil money in Saudi without good performance he should say Bye Bye and I wonder who’s disliking that comment.

    We like to decieve ourselves in Nigeria no wonder we still keep talking about this giant of a thing when we know we are not. Continue deceiving yourselves and kids when they grow up and realize there’s a better life by then they’ll see you as backward thinker.

      @Chima, I don’t know how it’s so difficult for you to simply comprehend the comments above. Quote any of the previous comments where you see “DROP Musa and invite Bazee”. If you can’t get any, simply know that “You’re talking in the rubbish”..lol

      What we are simply saying is: Musa has to work hard if he still wants to be in the Super Eagles of today. As @deo rightly said, you can’t have a Winger scoring and assisting plenty of goals in Europe top 5 leagues and still be inviting a Winger in a lowly Saudi League without a single goal in 17 games..17 oo! If Musa wants to be in the team, start firing left right and center in Saudi League.. simple!

      As for Bazee, I already told you we’re not saying he should be invited immediately. If you truly know Bazee, you will agree he was in top-top form when he was at Hannover then Injury struck him and he found it hard to recover all this while. Now he’s back this season at Augsburg and immediately he’s banging. That’s to tell you, he’s a PROSPECT. He is set to continue from where he stopped before the Injury hit him. Visit his IG account and you will see the Nigerian Flag there boldly meaning he wants to play as many as possible games and score also to make the list of Coach Gernot Rohr. If this eventually happens and you have Ejuke too on the Gaffer’s neck, will you still cling to Mr. 0 goals in Saudi Arabia???
