Ahmed Musa regrets Leicester move


Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has spoken on his move to Leicester City saying he should have remained at CSKA Moscow.

He also confirmed he won’t be leaving Saudi Arabia clubside, Al Nassr during the summer transfer window despite reports linking him away from the club when the transfer window reopens.

The former Leicester City star was linked with Fenerbahce for most of the season before the coronavirus outbreak, and Le 10 Sport even reported a transfer fee had been agreed between both clubs.

The Nigerian forward left the King Power Stadium to join Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr in a £15m deal in 2018 after he failed to justify the £16m transfer fee the Foxes paid CSKA Moscow for his services in 2016.

“Before they signed me at Leicester City, they told me Riyad Mahrez was leaving. If I knew that Mahrez is going to stay, I will not join Leicester, I would have stayed at CSKA Moscow.

“When I came, we had a lot of wingers at Leicester City, yet, I still got the chance to play.

“Claudio Ranieri always played me behind Jamie Vardy sometimes I play from the right or left wing. But after they sacked Craig Shakespeare I don’t know what happened anymore.”

“Those are rumours linking me away from the club,” Musa told Supersports’ Carol Shabalala during an Instagram Live chat.

“I love playing for my team (Al Nassr) and I will love to finish my contract with the club.”

The 27-year-old has two years left on his contract with Al Nassr.

Musa scored just five times in 32 appearances for the club in all competitions for Leicester City before his exit from the club.
