The Nigerian football federation has moved quickly to throw its weight behind troubled Super Eagles star Ahmed Musa.
Amaju Pinnick the president of the NFF leapt to Musa’s defence after he spoke with the player who was arrested for allegedly assaulting his wife.
“I’m in touch with Ahmed Musa. Reports of wife battering are false. Musa remains a responsible family man and player,” Pinnick said.
“Ahmed Musa is also very committed to seeing that we realize our dreams of making it to Russia 2018 World Cup.”
Pinnick position on the matter was also re-enforced by the decision of the management of Leicester City not to sanction Ahmed Musa after looking into the matter.
