Super Eagles head coach, Sunday Oliseh, has confirmed the appointment of Ahmed Musa as the new captain of the side in an interview with Brila FM.
Oliseh said he picked the CSKA Moscow of Russia forward because he is building a team for the future.
“There is no captain tussle. Going forward, I need a player who is a regular in the team and it is Ahmed Musa, who did a great job in Tanzania under difficult circumstances,” Oliseh told Brila FM Wednesday morning.
“He is the captain of the team, not somebody who is thinking of retirement. A captain has to lead by example. We are not here to build stars. There is no talk of conforming, if you can’t work with us you can leave.”
An obvious jab at former Eagles captain, Vincent Enyeama, whom he clashed with on Tuesday night in Belgium.
The Super Eagles will take on DR Congo in a friendly game on Thursday and then later confront Cameroon on Sunday at the Edmond Machtens Stadium, Brussels.
