Super Eagles striker Ahmed Musa says he is overwhelmed by the heroic royal welcome he received from fans of Saudi club side Al Nasrr on Friday.

Musa was welcomed by hundreds of flag-waving fans at the King Khaled International Airport in Riyadh on Friday ahead of an anticipated new football trajectory.

Having plied his trade in the Netherlands, Russia and England, Musa took the plunge to test the waters of Middle Eastern football.

Musa was simply awed by the Saudi hospitality.

“What a amazing reception here in Saudi Arabia I want to thank each and every person who came out and welcomed me at the airport. I am really humbled. I can feel the excitement and energy already, I am looking forward to this historic opportunity,” he tweeted.


Ahmed Musa’s superb World Cup heroics for Nigeria in June attracted interest from many clubsides.

Ultimately, Al Nassr won out!
