By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:
Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has said that age has nothing to with being the leader of a squad made up of high quality and experienced players.
Reacting to a question on how he felt captaining top quality and experienced players like Mikel Obi and Obafemi Martins, Musa said when he was invited to the Super Eagles for the first time, he was guided by the duo.
"When I came to the Eagles, in 2010 Obafemi Martins was like a father to me and he taught me a lot about the game. We also played together in Russia and we were close. It is fate that has made me captain and I will still count on their experience," the CSKA Moscow star told reporters in Abuja on Wednrsday.
"I will respect them and they should give me my due too. It is a reciprocal thing. Obafemi is like a father to me and I will always count on him for advice and other things."Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
