“I remember back then in Leicester when I was not .ing before the World Cup, a lot of people were complaining, ‘Musa is not .ing in Leicester so why is he going to the World Cup’, but the president spoke with the coach that no matter what Musa has to be in the World Cup so I went to Russia and later on he was saying you see”, he said.

He went further to say the president was also behind the call up he got to the team even when he was without a club for three months. He cites his very good relationship with the president as why he is getting such favours.
