Sai Masu Gida have thumbed up the transfer of the Super Eagles’ assistant skipper to England and predicted more opportunities for their players.
Kano Pillars have congratulated their former star Ahmed Musa who sealed a four year move to English champions, Leicester City ahead of the 2016/17 season.
Sai Masu Gida have predicted that the switch of the Super Eagles deputy captain to England will no doubt open the doors for more players of the side to play in the most exciting league in the world and other top clubs abroad.
Idris Malikawa,the club’s media officer, told Goal that Pillars are happy about the movement of Musa to Leicester City and are convinced that the striker will be successful in England just like he left his footprints in Europe since leaving Nigeria in 2010 as then record scorer in the domestic league.
“We are happy with the movement of Musa to England and we are very certain that he will continue to represent us well just like he did in Holland and Russia. We are glad that Musa passed through Pillars and that he has continued to move higher and higher and this won’t cease,” Malikawa told Goal.
“He was with us some weeks ago when he attended our training session before the game with Abia Warriors which we won handsomely for him. He has been a good ambassador of the club and his success at such a young age is a testament that he was a very good player when he was with us.”
Musa has won multiple titles in Nigeria with Kano Pillars and with Russian giants CSKA after joining them from Dutch side, VVV Venlo and he becomes the fourth signing of the summer for the English champions after the capture of goalkeeper Ron-Robert Zieler, defender Luis Hernandez and Nampalys Mendy.
Musa scored 13 goals and provided five assists for CSKA in 30 Russian Premier League games last season.
He has also scored 11 goals in 58 Nigeria appearances, two of them coming in the 3-2 loss to Argentina in the 2014 World Cup.
