Nigerian forward Ahmed Musa joins Saudi Arabia club Al Nassr after not getting enough time to play under Claude Puel at Leicester City. The 25-year old joined the club on a 4-year deal. Musa joined Leicester City in the summer of 2016 for a club record fee of £16.6 million. At his first season with the club, he made 32 appearances across all competitions, scoring just 4 goals.
Last season, he did not play a single match for Leicester City for the first half of the season. In the second half of the season, he was loaned to CSKA Moscow where he netted 7 goals in 16 matches.
Musa was Nigeria’s best player at the 2018 World Cup where he scored twice in three matches. Both of his goals came in Nigeria’s match against Iceland. Musa became the first Nigerian footballer to score in two World Cups.
Al Nassr is one of the finest clubs in Saudi Arabia. Some of its former players include Bulgarian legend Hristo Stoichkov and Greece’s Angelos Charisteas. Charisteas scored Greece’s winner in the Euro 2004 final against Portugal.
