The speedy winger who is having is second spell with the team has played two competitive matches for the club – in the Uefa Europa League with the Russia League still on break.

Musa shared pictures of himself and the gaffer on his instagram page @AhmedMusa718 accompanied by words of appreciation for the coach whom he described as a “teacher”.

“Words cannot express gratitude I am feeling for what you did. I appreciate your generosity. What did I ever do to deserve you? You are amazing. A great teacher inspires and you have inspired me to excel in the game football. I stumbled and failed but you taught me never to give up, I must keep on trying. I just want to say THANK…..THANK for the visit”

Ahmed Musa is expected to be among the Gernot Rohr’s list of invited players for the upcoming friendlies.

Nigeria play Poland on March 23 in Wroclaw, before facing Serbia in London four days later.
