Musa eager to start EPL adventure with Leicester
Super Eagles forward and Leicester City’s most expensive signing in history Ahmed Musa says he can’t wait to start his English Premier League adventure with the champions as a new term begins next month.
The former Lokomotiv Moscow player in a twitter post added that he’s happy in his new environment including a picture of him alongside last season’s PFA Player of the year Riyad Mahrez who’s expected to remain with the Foxes despite massive interest from Arsenal and Barcelona.
“All happy and ready to kick start the EPL season, can’t wait.” Musa wrote yesterday. The former Eagles skipper and his Leicester City teammates are in to Los Angeles, United States for their remaining phase of the preseason preparations before opening their EPL campaign against newly promoted side Hull City on August 13th.
Musa who is yet to open his goal-scoring account with Claudio Ranieri’s men but has dazzled in the test games featured so far and has left no one in doubt that he is worth the millions splashed on him.
Had his first silverware as the Premier League champions won on penalties (6-5) away at Celtic last Saturday evening after a 1-1 draw in normal time.
The next task for Musa and his colleagues is the clash with French giants Paris Saint Germain at the Stub Hub Center in California on July 30 in what will be a meeting of last season’s Premier League champions against the Ligue 1 winners.
