2018: Ahmed Musa is Nigerian Footballer of the Year

Welcome to Dafy World
 

Nigerian professional footballer, Ahmed Musa, has been crowned the Footballer of the Year by the organisers of the 2018 Nigerian Sports Award.

The Al-Nassr striker who produced an incredible performance for Nigeria at the 2018 World Cup in Russia beat Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo and Super Falcons’ Rasheedat Ajibade to scoop the award.

Super Eagles, Musa, has just ended the 2019 AFCON qualifying clash with the South Africans, which ended in a 1-1 draw in Johannesburg on Saturday, November 17, 2018.

Super Eagles stand-in captain took to Instagram to show his appreciation as he couldn't receive the award himself.



He wrote: 'I am extremely honored to be awarded the Nigerian footballer of the year. Firstly I thank Allah for everything and all of his blessings. I would also like to thank my teammates because without them this would not be possible! I dedicate this award to all my fans around the world who have supported me and gave me the energy and motivation to succeed. This is for you.'
