Ahmed Musa recently parted ways with Kano Pillars and sealed a move to Turkish Super League side Karagümrük.
No doubt Ahmed Musa’s talent is great, but his his days as the Super Eagles skipper could be numbered following a poor show in his short stint at Kano Pillars.
In truth, his performance at Pillars was nowhere near his best since he burst into limelight with his superb showing in 2010, and so no one will blame coach Gernot Rohr if he drops him in future.
After parting company with Al Nassr, he made a well publicized move to Kano Pillars, managing just a hugely disappointing one assist in as many games this season.
The more his form dipped, the less convincing he continued with his Eagles’ chances. What looked like a spark badly and suddenly quenched continued with a little cheer on his career appeared to have dealt him a deadly blow.
Indeed, there’s no time to waste to grab any player’s spot in the Eagles of today especially in the attacking line as more forward continue to make headlines with their exploits at club level.
This is a massive and interesting challenge for the once poster boy of Nigerian football, he has to brace up again and fight and continue fighting to prove himself.
With his recent move to Karagümrük, he could got get his groove back on as yours truly believes in his ability to be back again on his feet.
Could his problems be psychological or just lack of top flight games?
His recent games for the Super Eagles clearly showed he has a lot to do to hit the top again.
One thing is for sure, Musa will have to battle his way up again or risk going into obscurity.
Perhaps, his move to Turkey might launch him back into reckoning.
