Flying Eagles Captain Absconds From Siasia’s Team

THE captain of the U20s has left the U23 camp without informing the officials as he is set to sign a deal with a club in Germany
Flying Eagles captain Musa Muhammed has left the camp of the Nigeria U23s in Abuja without informing coach Samson Siasia or any other official of the team.
“Musa has left the camp without telling anybody of his where about,” Siasia told media in Abuja when asked about the skillful right back.
“But I can assure you that there is no cause for alarm because we have enough players that can deliver the goods here. The boys just need to play to instructions in the return leg in Lusaka and we will pick the All Africa Games ticket, I am confident of this,” he said.
It was also gathered that the Flying Eagles skipper allegedly left for Germany on Friday night in the company of his agent cum manager, Abbah Mohammed, who once managed former Golden Eaglets striker, Christantus Macaulay, to seal a deal with an unknown club.
The source also frowned at the way the player left the camp after being officially released by the Nigeria Football Federation to join the U23 national team together with four players of the Flying Eagles namely Mustapha Abdullahi, Taiwo Awoniyi, Benard Bulbwa and goalkeeper Dele Alampasu.
The other four players have been dazzling at training while Siasia, despite trying to hide it, was very disappointed with the player for not consulting him before making the trip.
Sources in the Dream Team camp also disclosed that the coach had taken huge interest in the defender and had already tipped him to man the right back position for the team in Lusaka because of his productive display and his good crosses.
But the coach has now given the player up till today to show up in camp or forget about being a member of the team.
Musa Abdullahi was one of the early arrivals to the Dream Team when the five Flying Eagles players were drafted into the U23 side.
