I’m comfortable playing in Russia — Ahmed Musa

Ahmed Musa

Super Eagles forward, Ahmed Musa, has said he is fine playing at the Russian League, and asked people to stop linking him to the English Premiership.

“I am comfortable in Russia, I am working there and I will remain there because I am happy over there,” he told PREMIUM TIMES.

The player, who just signed a four-year deal with CSKA Moscow, said if any other opportunity comes up, he might look into it.

“You know, I have to secure my future first before thinking of moving anywhere. If anything comes fine, but I still have my contract and by the Grace of God, things are going to work out fine, I believe,” he explained.

The 2013 African Cup of Nations winning squad member said the Nigerian team will work hard to qualify for the 2017 AFCON that will hold in Gabon.

“We can’t predict Chad, I think football has changed a lot now. We will work very hard and see if we will qualify for the AFCON,” he said.

The Super Eagles arrived Kaduna on Sunday to proceed with preparations for the first leg of the qualifying rounds of the 2017 African Cup of Nations which will take place in Gabon.
