“I Didn’t Exit the Team” – Ahmed Musa Denies Retirement Rumors

Ahmed Musa on retirement

Ahmed Musa, the captain of Nigeria’s national football team, has denied recent reports suggesting his retirement from international football.

These rumors surfaced after Musa was not selected by former Super Eagles head coach Finidi George for the World Cup qualifiers against South Africa and Benin Republic.

Addressing the speculations in a conversation with journalists in Kaduna following a friendly match he hosted, Ahmed Musa dismissed the retirement claims as unfounded and emphasized his ongoing dedication to the national team.

“I only took a little break from the national team. But I didn’t exit the team,” Musa clarified, according to Leadership.

The Super Eagles star last represented Nigeria in a World Cup qualifying match against Cape Verde in 2021. His most recent appearance prior to the Africa Cup of Nations was a brief seven-minute stint in a friendly against Guinea in January.

Ahmed Musa has been without a club since he mutually terminated his contract with Turkish side Sivasspor in February, fueling further speculation about his retirement.

Throughout his career, the winger has enjoyed success across three continents, having played in Saudi Arabia, the Netherlands, England, Russia, and Turkey.

He has secured numerous titles, including three Russian Premier League championships with CSKA Moscow, the Saudi League and Super Cup with Al Nassr, and the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria.
