"I Will Never Wear The Captain Band For Super Eagles Again", Says Ahmed Musa

Nigerian international, Ahmed Musa, says he will never captain the senior national team again, no matter the circumstance.

During Thursday’s international friendly against Senegal in London, Ogenyi Onazi who captained the Eagles got
injured and Musa, the next in line, refused to take the armband as stand-in captain.

After the game, the Leicester FC striker told The Cable that he will no longer have anything
to do with the captaincy of the Eagles.

“Why will I be on the pitch and you will tell me that someone will captain the team?” he asked.

Ahmed Musa was Eagles captain until March
2016 when Mikel Obi replaced him before the AFCON qualifiers against the Pharaohs of Egypt.

“I have chosen to step down as the assistant
captain of the Super Eagles,” he said.
Musa, who has made 60 international
appearances and scored 11 goals for the
Eagles, said that the issue of captaincy will not
affect his commitment to the Nigerian cause.
“I am part of the team and will always be part
of the team,” he said. “I will always support
whatever decision the coaching crew or
technical crew take. We all are working for the
progress of the team.”
