Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa, has blamed the passionate Nigerian fans for the decision of Mikel Obi, Victor Moses, and Odion Ighalo to quit the national team early.
Musa who played along with the trio of retired players among others expressed bitterness over such development in the national team.
e, however, used the medium to caution Super Eagles fans urging them to always bear with players in their difficult moments on the pitch.
“We have a lot of players who should not have retired from the team when they did but it was what the media reported that forced them out,” Musa said.
“As you can see, we still need someone like Mikel Obi in the team, we still need Victor Moses. “It’s not all about young players in the team because you need players to take them along, but right now we don’t have that.”
Mikel retired from the Super Eagles team in 2019 after Nigeria finished third at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt while Moses quit the team after the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
