Though Ahmed Musa did not score during his second stint with the Nigeria Professional Football League side Kano Pillars, the Super Eagles captain has started brightly in Turkey.
Musa Saturday night emerged as an instant hero for his new Turkish club, Fatih Karagumruk, as he led them to a winning start in their maiden campaign in the Turkish Super Lig.
Ahmed Musa scored what turned to be the winning goal for his Istanbul club in the 90th minute and he is understandably happy with the good start.
‘A good start, we keep going mates,” the Nigerian fleet-footed forward wrote on his Instagram page after the 3-2 win over Gaziantep.
It was Musa who actually created the first goal for his team when he beat the offside trap to get on a long pass before slipping the ball to a teammate in the box, leading to an own-goal.
Musa’s magic moment for his debut goal came in the 90th minute when he ghosted past two defenders before applying a simple finish to give his side a 3-1 lead.
Though Gaziantep pulled another goal back, it was not enough to deny Musa and his teammates a memorable outing as the game finished 3-2.
Having done previously well in the leagues in Holland, Russia, England and Saudi Arabia, Ahmed Musa would be keen to prove his worth yet again, this time in Turkey.
The Super Eagles captain reportedly rejected offers from some bigger Turkish clubs to sign for promoted Faith Karagumruk and it is proving to be a great switch as well as a smart decision.
