Super Eagles legend Finidi George believes that Ahmed Musa’s return to Kano Pillars will keep him fit to perform impressively for the Nigerian national team in the upcoming World Cup qualifiers.
Recall that FrujuSports had reported earlier that Eagles current captain Musa was unveiled as a Kano Pillars attacker on Thursday.
In an interview with a Lagos-based radio station as reported by Complete Sports, Finidi George insisted that Musa’s return to the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) won’t make him a lesser player.
“For him to get playing minutes because the Nations Cup is coming and the qualifiers are coming up; We need him to be in good form. It doesn’t really matter, he has learned a lot outside the country.”
“I don’t think coming back will make him a lesser player, the only thing is that he’s not going to have that good top competition week in week out, that is the only difference. But he has to be fit if he wants to play for the Super Eagles and as the captain, he has to make some sacrifices,” he concluded.
