Oliseh Confirms Musa As New Super Eagles Captain

By Adeboye Amosu:

Super Eagles head coach, Sunday Oliseh, has confirmed the appointment of Ahmed Musa as the new captain of the side, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.

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 someboby 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."

Oliseh was apparently referring to 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 Matchens Stadium, Brussels.

    Good decision taken by the coach, Ahmed Musa is a regular in his club and deserves to be  the captain. The time a bench warmer will come and become the captain of the national team. We experience such when Stephen Keshi and Joseph Yobo were playing, they warm the bench of there clubs but become lord in super eagles.

    Hmm! The shadow of failure will loom over coach Olishe decision! Why Nigerians never learn from their passed mistakes, hun? For sure, the team will never unit from this brutal action. Enyeama doesn’t deserve to be treated like this. I am shaking my head for coach Olishe and NFF. God bless Nigeria!

    I whole heartedly support Oliseh in this. Can Enyeama argue with his coach in Lille? When Oliseh was playing for clubs and country where was Enyeama? Enyeama was still in a local club in Nigeria. Enyeama is afraid of the new goalkeeper, Carl. Enyeama should retire now with his honor intact now before the fans go against him. Nigerian fans can be ruthless when it comes to some issues and a player trying to be bigger than the coach or team is one of those issues that can bring out the ruthlessness of the Nigerian fans. Enyeama should tread softly. Musa is the new captain and on behalf of the Nigerian fans, I say it is ticked gooddddd. We need dedicated, humble, regular for club() and quick to answer national call player as the Eagles' captain

    Musa is the new captain of the Super Eagles. End if matter. We need a captain who is dedicated. Cool headed. Well behaved. Regular club shirt. Quick response to national call. Musa fits the bill. He scoring goals of recent. Enyeama is big headed now and talk too much. Not so before now.

    The coach decides who takes the lead. H
