Ahmed Musa Bemoans Lack Of Leadership In Peseiro-led Super Eagles


Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa says the Super Eagles squad lacks leadership that can spearhead the team following their abysmal performance in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The former Leicester City star spoke in Lagos during a ceremony to unveil the team’s ‘Let’s Do It Again’ mantra in their bid to win a fourth AFCON title in Ivory Coast next year.

According to Musa, “We still need someone like Mikel Obi, Victor Moses in the team. It’s not all about young players in the team, you need someone to take them along but right now we don’t have that.”

He called on the media and Nigerians to rally around the players without putting undue pressure on them to perform at the highest level in the field of play.

“Nowadays with the players we have, none of them staying in Nigeria. They don’t know the anger that we face whenever we lose.

“So, please I am begging the media to please take it easy with these young boys, they can’t take too much pressure. That is why whenever they go onto the pitch to play they panic because they are thinking about what they are going to see on their accounts on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.”
