Why Ahmed Musa may loose Super Eagles captaincy ahead of World cup and AFCON qualifiers



Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has officially exited Saudi Arabian club, Al Nassr and this may likely cost him his captaincy band.

The club confirmed Ahmed Musa’s departure on their verified Twitter handle even as they wished the 28-year-old the very best in his future endeavors

“Thank you Nigerian falcon, wishing you all the best in the future! @Ahmedmusa718,” the club wrote.


Ahmed Musa joined Al Nassr in 2018 after a turbulent spell with Premier League club Leicester City. The fleet-footed winger did rake in 58 appearances where he scored 11 goals and got 14 assists.

Musa in his two-year stint in Saudi Arabia helped Al Nassr win the 2018-19 Saudi top-flight title and the 2019 Saudi Super Cup.

With this latest development, the Super Eagles captain is now a free agent and he is expected to announce his next destination in the coming days.


Meanwhile, with the roster of World Cup qualifiers and AFCON qualifiers lined up, Musa may not have the chance of leading Nigeria to the 2022 AFCON billed to take place in Cameroon.

Super Eagles manager Gernot Rohr is known to invite only the players who are active at club level and Musa may not be an exception.

As we wait to know Rohr’s decision, we wish Musa best of luck.
