Nigeria star Ahmed Musa has said he got a lot of assurances from Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri before he started scoring in the Premier League.
Ahmed Musa has scored in his club’s last two league games after going without a goal in his first five matches.
“The manager told me ‘don’t worry, just keep working hard and it will come’ and finally it is coming,” said the 24-year-old Nigeria international, an 18 million pounds signing from Russian champions CSKA Moscow.
His equaliser at Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend earned Leicester their first away point of the season and the former Kano Pillars star said he believes the spirit that drove ‘The Foxes’ to an unlikely Premier League conquest is steadily coming back.
“From the game at Tottenham, the spirit of last season is coming back and we are working very hard for that,” he said.
“My goal (vs Tottenham) was very important, it was our first point away from home this season.”
