Super Eagles winger Ahmed Musa has admitted that he did not deserve to be named skipper of the team under former coach Sunday Oliseh.
Musa was picked ahead of big stars like Elderson Echiejile, Efe Ambrose and Mike Obi under Oliseh but stepped down for the Chelsea star on Thursday.
“I didn’t deserve the skipper’s arm band when I was named captain of the team. Mikel is now the new Eagles skipper,” Musa told Completesportsnigeria.com here in Abuja on Thursday.
“We have to move on from the past and focus on the Egypt match, which we have to win on Friday.”
Musa also told Completesportsnigeria.com that it was not a difficult decision for him to make after meeting with his other teammates.
“He’s a senior player to me and more deserving of the arm band,” Musa added.
“The focus is to beat Egypt to boost our chances of qualifying for the Nations Cup in Gabon.”
