The Nigeria international, currently on loan from Leicester City for the season, expressed optimism about breaking his goal drought and emphasized his dedication to achieving success.
Musa, who has been summoned by Super Eagles coach Gernot Rohr for the upcoming World Cup preparation matches against Poland and Serbia, conveyed his determination in an interview with bobsoccer.ru on Wednesday. “I am sure that I will start to score soon. I work, I try very hard to make this happen as soon as possible. The most important thing is to score the first goal, then things will go better right away,” commented the former Kano Pillars striker.
Anticipating challenging encounters against Lyon, Musa acknowledged the significance of performing well at home. “It will be very heavy matches, and for us, and for our rivals. We expect to come out successfully. Ahead of the home game, I think we are well prepared for it. Yes, it is important. You need to win in your field. Ideally, I would like to win without conceding.”
Musa’s proactive mindset reflects his commitment to elevating CSKA Moscow’s performance in the Europa League. As he eyes a scoring resurgence, the forward aims to contribute significantly to his team’s success on the continental stage.
