Leicester City forward, Ahmed Musa, is at the risk of losing his place in the Super Eagles as coach Gernot Rohr is getting impatient with his attitude.
It was gathered that the player’s general attitude in camp has not been good, even as his performance rating on the field of play has dropped significantly with the German tactician not impressed, according to sources.
“He seemed to have some problems with the team when Samson Siasia was briefly in charge, but he made the mistake of carrying this into Rohr’s regime. That has not helped him,” an official said.
Rohr overlooked Ahmed Musa to lead the Eagles against Senegal in London last week, when he handed Ogenyi Onazi the captain’s armband instead.
It was further learnt that immediately after this decision, the Leicester City star hurriedly called a players’ meeting during which he announced he will no longer be assistant captain of the team.
“That was very childish of him,” blasted a team official.
Rohr revealed on radio that Ahmed Musa was excused from camp to attend to family issues, but it has been revealed the player asked to leave camp.
But this was only the culmination of the problems between player and coach as Rohr has been far from pleased with Ahmed Musa’s general attitude particularly on the pitch.
It would be recalled that Ahmed Musa drove into the team’s training camp with an expensive Range Rover Sports he had acquired just days to a crucial World Cup qualifier in Zambia in October.
The coach was miffed by this as he expected all the players in camp to focus totally on the game in Ndola, Zambia.
“The coach did not even mind this. It’s the player’s attitude he has not been happy with,” further informed another official
