Ahmed Musa set for penalty-taking responsibilities if…

02 November 2015, 11:08

Moscow - Super Eagles skipper Ahmed Musa says he sees no reason why he should turn down the opportunity to take penalty kicks if he is handed the responsibility by CSKA Moscow coach, Leonid Slutsky.

The Russian Premier League table toppers defeated Sylvester Igboun's FC Ufa 2-0 in their latest game in the league, with Sergei Ignashevich converting a spot kick in the 21st minute.

''We have a head coach who determines who takes the penalty kick. I do not see myself as a candidate to take a penalty. If one day, Leonid Slutsky decides to entrust it to me, I am happy to fulfil it,'' Musa told CSKA's official website.

''All matches are difficult. We do not divide opponents on the strengths and weaknesses.''

The CSKA Moscow attacker was delighted to secure all three points in the clash with Ufa but has posited that the Army Men could have won with a bigger score.

Adds Ahmed Musa: ''The most important thing - the three points. Today we dominated the game, while we didn't utilize all the chances. The score could be 4-0 and 5-0, but we did not use those moments.

''Sometimes you score, sometimes you do not. I am sure that soon I will score again. I hope it will happen in the game with Manchester United.''

Musa appeared for the 14th time in the Premier League against FC Ufa.
