Why I joined Leicester City – Ahmed Musa

Leicester City new signing Ahmed Musa says the reason why I joined the English Premier League champions is because the club is like a family.

Musa on Friday sealed a four-year deal with Leicester from Russian side CSKA Moscow.

“I feel very happy joining Leicester City, for me it’s one of the best clubs and I feel very happy,” Musa told the club’s website.

“I joined because it’s one of the best clubs in the Premier League and they are like a family.That’s why I joined Leicester City and I’m very excited.

“I look forward to seeing the fans in the new season and I will do my best to make them happy.

The striker scored 13 goals and assisted another five for CSKA in 30 Russian Premier League appearances during the 2015-16 season – his most prolific campaign for Leonid Slutsky’s side since his arrival from Dutch side VVV-Venlo in 2012.

The 23-year-old has been at a CSKA training camp at an army base, 10 miles outside Moscow, and trained with his team-mates on Saturday but did not take part in a practice match against FC Yenisey Krasnoyarsk on Sunday.

Musa, who can play as a winger or a striker, has scored 54 goals in 168 games for the Russian club, making his international debut against Madagascar in September 2010.

The Nigerian has scored 11 times in 58 appearances for his country, including two goals in the Super Eagles’ 3-2 defeat to Argentina at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
