Leicester star brace against Barcelona did not surprise Nigerian international

Leicester City summer signing Ahmed Musa bagged a brace against Barcelona during their recent 4-2 friendly defeat.

Musa’s performance came as a surprise to most fans and pundits but his Nigerian international team-mate Ogenyi Eddy Onazi revealed he pretty much expected that kind of performance.

The Trabzonspor midfielder shared a tweet claiming he had already prophesied the kind of performances Musa would put on for the Foxes.

Musa became Leicester’s record signing at a reported £16m from CSKA Moscow last month.

The young striker came on as a second half substitute against Barca and scored twice including this amazing solo effort shortly after the interval.

Even Foxes fan Gary Lineker was impressed in fact he suggested that Musa and Jamie Vardy may just be one of the fastest pair of strikers since records began.

Onazi meanwhile joined Trabzonspor from Lazio on a four-year deal yesterday and has taken the number of Nigerian players in Turkey up to 21.
