Ahmed Musa has made it known that he wants to win the Cup of Nations trophy in honour of the late coach of Super Eagles, Stephen Keshi.
In an interview with CAF online, Musa, who was part of the team that won the 2013 AFCON, said:
“It was such a happy occasion when we won in 2013 and we said as a team then that there is no bigger honour than winning something for your country. Now, it is the same for us this year after missing out over the last two editions.
“If we win the title, I am going to dedicate it to the late Stephen Keshi because he was like a father to me. It’s not that easy losing someone so special to you and the memories I have left of him are like a motivator.
“There are so many lessons I draw from him as a person and as a coach and that is what always keeps me going. We really miss him as players and as a country and we always pray for him. It would be an honour for us if we won this for him.
We don’t fear anyone. For us, is just to take a game at a time, focus as a team and give our best. There is no easy team at this AFCON and we know if we are to win, it will come as a result of very hard work.”
