Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa has stated that he has not made the decision on where he’ll be playing his club football in the new season.
Musa talked about his club future at a news conference after he emerged as a hero for the Super Eagles of Nigeria in a 2-0 win over Iceland at the Volgograd Arena on Friday evening.
The former VVV Venlo of Holland star scored a second half brace to lead the Eagles to a first win in Group D at the ongoing FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
Ahmed Musa moved from CSKA Moscow to Premier League side Leicester City for a club record fee in 2016 but struggled for playing time with the Foxes and that prompted him to return to the Russian side in January on a six-month loan deal.
The former Kano Pillars striker regained his form at the club.
When asked about his future Ahmed Musa said: “I have go back to Leicester, but the decision to stay – I can’t decide for now.”
“In the next two weeks, I can decide if I’m going to stay or leave.
“Coming back to CSKA, yeah, if it’s possible I would love to, it’s my die-hard club.
“There is nothing I can pay them for the past seasons I’ve been with them other than to say ‘thank you very much’.
“They helped me get back to the style of play I had today. Were it not for CSKA, I would not have been in the World Cup.” He concluded.
His brace against Iceland means that Ahmed Musa is the first Nigerian to score in two different World Cup editions.
He has also surpassed Samuel Eto’o of Cameroon and Papa Bouba Diop of Senegal (3 goals) to become the 3rd highest African goalscorer in World Cup history with 4 goals behind Asamoah Gyan of Ghana (6 goals) and Roger Milla of Cameroon (5 goals).
