Ahmed Musa Back in Saudi Arabia for Restart of Season


Super Eagles Captain, Ahmed Musa, has returned to Saudi Arabia ahead of the restart of the country’s professional football league suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Our Nigerian star, Ahmed Musa, arriving earlier today in Riyadh!” a tweet on the club’s official Twitter handle announced on Thursday morning.

The pacy, former Leicester City winger is expected to undergo Covid-19 tests immediately at the Central First Health Centre in Riyadh before joining his team-mates in training.

Musa was flown to Lagos last April in a private jet by the Saudi club along with his family members and Super Eagles teammate, John Ogu.
