Right now in the Arabic press, Ahmed Musa’s future at Saudi Pro League side AL Nassr has been the subject of speculation following his omission from the squad that played out a 2-2 draw with Joseph Akpala’s AL Faisaly FC on Thursday evening.
There were earlier claims that Musa elected not to play the game because of a financial disagreement with Al Nassr but this has been dismissed by the club’s interim coach, Helder Cristovao as well as a high up Saudi journalist, Abdul Aziz Al-Marsil.
Cristovao confirmed just before the match that the Nigeria international was not included in the squad due to injury.
Al-Marsil tweeted that the former Leicester City striker requested to play with his injury but the doctor did not grant him the go-ahead after an X-ray, adding that saying that the reason for his absence because of financial reasons is not true.
Musa was directly involved in 6 goals in his first five league games in Saudi Arabia but has managed only one goal in his last nine appearances.
Following their draw against AL Faisaly, Al Nassr now have 34 points from 16 games, two fewer than table-toppers AL Hilal Riyadh who have a game in hand.
