Amuneke Faults Rohr On Musa’s Invitation For AFCON Qualifiers


Former Super Eagles winger Emmanuel Amuneke is not comfortable with Ahmed Musa’s invitation for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against Benin and Lesotho.

Musa was named in the 24-man squad for both games by Super Eagles head coach Gernot Rohr on Tuesday.

His selection has generated controversy as he has been without a club since last October.

“Professionally and morally, Ahmed Musa should not be on the list because he is not engaged in a competitive league,” Amuneke declared.

“He should not have been invited.

“He has given so much to the country and was probably brought in to motivate the younger players in the team.

“It’s for the coach to give reasons why he invited this player.”

The Super Eagles will face Benin at the Stade Charles de Gaulle , Porto Novo on Saturday, March 27 and later host Lesotho at the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Lagos on Tuesday, March 30 in their final two games in the qualifiers.
