The fans of Saudi Arabian club side, Al-Nassar in their thousands trooped out to welcome their new signing and Nigerian International Ahmed Musa at the Air Port a few hours ago.

Ahmed Musa and the management of the club could not believe their eyes as the mammoth crowd disrupted the red carpet arrangement initially set up to welcome the Super Eagles winger, to catch a glimpse of the Nigerian hero at the Russia 2018 FIFA world.

The former Leicester City and CSKA Moscow winger who touched down at the King Khalid International Air Port Riyadh was given a presidential reception by supporters who chanted ‘Musa! Musa! Musa! as he walks past the crowd with security guiding and escorting him to a waiting vehicle on Friday.

Al-Nassar which is a football club in the Saudi Professional League, signed Ahmed Musa from Leicester City for an undisclosed fee on a four-year deal, after he struggled to impress during his time with the former  English Premier League champions.

Ahmed Musa struggled during his time at Leicester and was only able to rediscover himself after leaving for a loan to his old club CSKA Moscow in Russia. He later took the form to Russia 2018 FIFA world cup where his brace at the group stage of the competition helped Nigeria beat Iceland for their only win in the just concluded tournament.

Though the Nigerian has been criticized for making the move to the Middle East country, after a fantastic world cup outing. But a source hint that the contract was such that Musa could not turn down, as he looks to experience another life and environment away from what he is used to.

Ahmed Musa who can play as a striker, left and right winger will be looking to replicate his form at World cup and in Russia for CSKA Moscow at his new club.
