AHEAD OF THE 2013 FIFA Confederations Cup in Brazil, Super Eagles and CSKA Moscow forward, Ahmed Musa will be joining the Nigerian squad in their Germany training camp on June 2 .
Speaking from his base on Monday, the speed-star revealed why he was left out of the Stephen Keshi side that will face the El tri of Mexico in May 31international friendly game in Houston, USA. “I will be going to Germany on June 2 after the Russian Cup final.
I have been in contact with the team secretary of the Super Eagles and told him that if my club qualifies for the Russian Cup final, I will not be available for the friendly.
So, when we eventually qualified, the secretary called me again to confirm if I will still be able to come and I told him it wasn’t possible,”said Musa who was crowned Russia Premier League winners last weekend with the capital outfit.
The former Kano Pillars ace it would be recalled has been in blistering form in the Russian top flight in the outgoing campaign scoring 11 goals in 25 league appearances to help CSKA win the title after a 0-0 draw against Kuban K. Meanwhile, in a twist of events, CSKA Moscow fans have called for a boycott of the Russian Cup final against Anzhi Makhachkala because it will be played in the Chechen capital Grozny. The fans are angry with the FA’s decision to host the finals in the volatile North Caucasus region.
