Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa says the presence of Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez was the main reason he failed to earn a regular playing berth during his time at Leicester City.

Musa joined Leicester City for a then club record £16.6 fee in July 2016 from Russian outfit CSKA Moscow.

The 27-year-old scored two goals in 22 league appearances during his time with the Foxes.

After struggling for game time at the club, he was loaned back to CSKA Moscow in January 2018.

Musa finally left Leicester for Saudi Arabia Professional League club Al Nassr in August 2018.

“Before they signed me at Leicester City, they told me Riyad Mahrez was leaving,” Musa said on Instagram Live while speaking to SuperSport TV’s Carol Tshabalala.

“If I knew that Mahrez is going to stay, I will not join Leicester, I would have stayed at CSKA Moscow.

“When I came, we had a lot of wingers at Leicester City, yet, I still got the chance to play.”
