EPL: why Ahmed Musa failed to succeed at Leicester City -- Kanu Nwankwo

Arsenal and Nigeria legend, Nwankwo Kanu has explained why CSKA Moscow forward, Ahmed Musa failed to justify his big money move to Premier League side, Leicester City.

He, however, said Musa is one of the most experienced players in the Super Eagles’ squad.

Ahmed Musa is set to participate in his second World Cup after he was named in Nigeria’s final squad announced on Sunday.

The 25-year-old netted four goals in 32 appearances for Leicester City in his debut season.

He, however, found himself out of favour last season before he was loaned by the Foxes to CSKA Moscow.

"Musa is a very good player, his main asset, of course, speed. As for his appearances for Leicester, he got into the team at a difficult moment, it was hard after they won the league, many changes followed. All this affected the career of Ahmed in England,” Kanu told Russian News Agency TASS.
"But that does not mean that Musa is a bad player, I think he showed his level when he returned to Russia before the World Cup.
"I consider him one of the leaders of the Nigerian national team because he is already a very experienced player, he played and scored in the last World Cup.
 "In several games he was even the captain of the national team. The Nigerian team certainly needs such a player, he will help grow young players."
