Oliseh Strips Enyeama Of Eagles’ Captain Band, Picks Musa

Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh has declared Ahmed Musa captain of the national team. He confirmed this on Wednesday in Belgium in an interview with Brila FM.

“There is no captaincy tussles. For Nigeria going forward, I need a player who is regular in the team and it is Ahmed Musa, who did a great job in Tanzania under very difficult circumstances.

“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,” he said.

Recall that there was a major rift between Oliseh and former skipper, Vincent Enyeama on Tuesday night in Belgium. The incident is believed to be responsible for the declaration.

The decision has aroused mixed feelings from the fans. While some hailed the coach’s decision, some criticised him as they opined it would unsettle the team.
