A New Beginning! Ahmed Musa is New Super Eagles Captain



Ahmed Musa

Attention Super Eagles fans! There’s a new captain of the team: Ahmed Musa.

Sunday Oliseh, who is the coach of the team, confirmed the new appointment, Complete Sports reports.

Speaking on why he chose the CSKA Moscow of Russia forward, Oliseh said:

“There is no captain tussle. Going forward, I need a player who is a regular in the team and it is Ahmed Musa, who did a great job in Tanzania under difficult circumstances. He is the captain of the team, not someboby who is thinking of retirement. A captain has to  lead by example. We are not here to build stars.”

Allegedly referring to a small clash he had with Vincent Enyeama during a match on Tuesday night in Belgium, Oliseh said “There is no talk of conforming, if you can’t work with us you can leave.”

    Congrats. I remember his two goals last year in Brazil against the Argies.

    The ruckus in the camp has started…

    hmmm! fresh start indeed. I don’t think Enyeama deserves the harsh treatment meted out to him recently. Oliseh might have to tone it down a bit, just two games and he’s always in the media complaining, today Mikel didn’t pick his call, tomorrow – Vincent lacks discipline…just too much drama.

    The guy is funken strict. We need a better team like the usa’94. He got some nodes from Westerhof. Carry on Oliseh. Show them, they’re not hero.
    The success of this new team start great mental attitude

    i think we should give both oliseh and enyeama a break, the team is not meant for enyeama alone and oliseh is the coach, he needs to stamp his authority and be allow to make his choice and mistakes as we might perceived them to be.
