“I sustained an injury, and when I came back, Nigeria refused to take care of my injury, so I had to use my life savings to go back to America in September 1985 to take care of the injury. “But I still come out to volunteer myself to give back to my country. People are saying, ‘why should you do that? They didn’t take care of you’.”

In a chat with Sports Brief, the most capped Super Eagles player Ahmed Musa confirmed that he sent the 1982 Commonwealth gold medalist half a million Naira.
