Ahmed Musa

Ahmed Musa

Ahmed Musa is a brand new player to Leicester, who originally comes from Jos, Nigeria, where he spent his time playing as a youth player. When he turned professional, he played for a couple of different teams in Nigeria for two years, and then moved onto other teams.

He played for VVV-Venlo for two years and then CSKA Moscow for four years, before signing with Leicester in 2016. His most impressive playing was with the Russian team, CSKA Moscow, where he scored an impressive 42 goals over the four years he was with the team.

Team Performance

Ahmed Musa, along with Shinji Okazaki, Jamie Vardy, Islam Slimani, and RiyadMahrez is a top performer and scorer with Leicester. In his very young career with Leicester City, he has already bagged four goals for the team. He is very well known for his playing style and fast footwork.

Many players cannot keep up with Musa as he moves across the field and strikes. That is probably the reason behind his impressive strike rate. He feels so comfortable with the ball and has a confidence in his own playing ability that many other players lack. It is that level of certainty that is going to make Musa a beast on the pitch.


If I were a betting man (and I am), I would be watching Musa very closely. Musa adds speed and agility to an already powerful team, and there is nothing quite like a well-balanced team having all of its parts fortified. If he has another season like his last with Moscow, Leicester is going to be in a league of his own, which is very good news for a fan like me.

There are some other players to watch out for as well, but I think Ahmed is going to show them up once he gets more comfortable with the team.
