Gernot Rohr has explained why he fielded Captain Ahmed Musa in the Afcon qualifiers against Lesotho last Tuesday.
Recalled that the Franco-German tactician previously said Musa who last played competitive football five months ago isn’t playing a part in the match after his initial inclusion in the squad generated criticism from a section of the local media.
However, the former Leicester City and Al Nassr man came on as a second-half substitute in the match against the Crocodiles in Lagos and Rohr has now been forced to defend his decision again.
“Musa could play because we only have 21 players with him we became 22.”
“So he could come in, he was fit and met the physical test. He’s in good shape and so, there was no reason not to allow him to play.”
“He’s the captain of the team and we want him to do it on the pitch and also we wanted to help him find a good club now,” he said.
