Former Super Eagles winger, Tijani Babaginda, has urged super Eagles winger, Ahmed Musa to continue to improve his goalscoring record in order to attract the interest of Europe’s top clubs.

Musa has 10 goals and six assists in all competitions for CSKA Moscow so far this season and provided the Super Eagles’ solitary strike in its 1-1 draw with South Africa, in a match in which he captained the Nigerian team.

Babangida, who is the chairman of Nigeria Professional Football League side FC Taraba, called on the winger to develop a ruthless streak in order to force a potential move to one of Europe’s elite asides.

“I am really impressed with the new Ahmed Musa, it shows that he is working really hard at his club and it is telling in his form of late,” Babangida said.

“I was on the same flight with him some time ago and I used the opportunity to tell him one or two things about his game. And I am very happy to see him scoring the way he is doing now.

“For him to really catch the eye of the big clubs, he needs to continue this scoring form, because that is what most of these clubs are actually looking for.

“I want to say that his Russian club has really helped to improve his playing skills.

“And by the time he moves to one of the bigger clubs in Europe, he will be a better player for the Super Eagles and a big encouragement to the young and aspiring footballers in Nigeria and the northern part of the country in particular.

“I have done my part and I am happy that Musa is following in those footsteps.”
