It’s not often that you see a player absolutely embarrass the Barcelona defense. When that player is wearing a Leicester City jersey doubly so. Ahmed Musa arrived in Leicester on July 8th for a club record £16.6 million.
While experts have been dissecting where the Nigerian winger/forward fits in the Leicester City setup, Musa has let his ridiculously quick feet do the talking.
Musa scored two goals in Leicester’s 4-2 loss to Barcelona, and it was his first strike for the club that really got people talking.
Displaying an electric turn of pace, great composure and a fearlessness that will suit Leicester on their Champions League debut, Musa scored a remarkable goal after tearing through the heart of Barca’s defense.
The 23-year-old has already appeared for Nigeria 58 times, and he was consistently one of the best players in the Russian Premier League with CSKA Moscow.
For those watching Leicester City and the Premier League closely this year, certainly keep an eye on Ahmed Musa.
