Ahmed Musa is no doubt one of the best Nigerian forwards ever considering his achievements so far and also the clubs he has played for.

Speaking with Legit.ng in an exclusive video interview, Ahmed Musa was asked to name his toughest opponent since he started playing football in which he picked Sergio Ramos and Marcelo.
''I think Sergio Ramos and Marcelo are the two players who really gave me tough times and that was when we played against them in the Champions League,'' Ahmed Musa explained.
Ahmed Musa played in the Champions League when he was at CSKA Moscow in which he met many of the world best defenders.
Real Madrid duo of Sergio Ramos and Marcelo have been impressive in the defense for Los Blancos for years in which they have both won many titles.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa revealed that Odion Ighalo is being missed at the national team stressing that the Manchester United on-loan striker contributed a lot to the team before his retirement.
Odion Ighalo retired from the Nigerian national senior men's team after the 2019 African Nations Cup where the Super Eagles finished as third best in the championship.
His retirement came as a surprise to many Nigerians considering how he has been leading the Super Eagles attack.
Efforts were made by concerned football administrators to make sure Odion Ighalo returns to the Super Eagles, but the former Watford man has snubbed the calls.
While speaking exclusively with Legit.ng on Instagram live video, Ahmed Musa made it clear that Odion Ighalo's decision must be respected even though it was painful when he left Super Eagles.
