Ahmed Musa is officially the new Super Eagles Captain, national team coach, Sunday Oliseh has announced.
Ahmed Musa played the captain’s role in the Super Eagles last two matches against Tanzania and Niger Republic and while many thought it was only in a stand-in capacity, Coach Oliseh has revealed otherwise even as he stated that he is already looking into the future.
There was a major fall-out between Oliseh and hitherto skipper Vincent Enyeama on Tuesday night in Belgium; a development that may have further contributed to the Eagles coach making a firm declaration on the captaincy of the Eagles going forward.
” There’s no captain tussle, when you have a new government, you have your philosophy and way of working. As a Coach I’ve looked at the team and Nigeria going forward.
” I think we need a captain that will be with us for longer, who plays regularly in the front and Ahmed did a great job for us in Tanzania; under very difficult circumstances, he’s a very responsible player and will be the captain of the team, there’s no question.” Oliseh said in a radio interview with Brila FM on Wednesday morning.
