Musa gets No 7 jersey at CSKA Moscow


Super Eagles ace Ahmed Musa says CSKA Moscow is a club with unique fighting spirit, describing the VEB Arena as a home.

Musa who has been handed No. 7 jersey was warmly welcomed by club management who wished him fruitful return.

The pacy forward who transferred to English premiership side Leicester in August 2016 for £16million, further said he is happy to be back to the Red and Blue Family.

“I am happy and proud to be back. This is truly my home, Champion team that fights for top awards and occupy highest places. I am back to the Red and Blue Family,” he enthused

Musa has only mustered one Leicester appearance this term however, when he found the net in a Carabao Cup clash at Sheffield United

Prior to his transfer to Leicester City, Musa spent five seasons with the Russian side scoring 50 goals in all competitions

CSKA are fifth in the Russian Premier League, with the division currently on a winter break until March.

Musa will be eligible to feature in next month’s Europa League round of 32 tie with Red Star Belgrade.

It will be recalled that the former Kano Pillars forward wore No. 18 jersey during his first stay with CSKA Moscow.

His return to the club has been hailed in some quarters coming at a time when Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr is expecting Nigerian players to be at their peak and play regularly ahead of the World Cup.

The German tactician only recently advised Musa and Kelechi Iheanacho to seek new clubs where they can play regularly after playing time turned into gold at the King Power Stadium.

Iheanacho only few days back scored a brace in Leicester City’s 5-1 defeat of Peterborough in the FA cup clash bring his FA cup goals to nine in nine matches, prompting some analysts to suggest that there could be a turn of fortune for him at the King Power Stadium
