Stop dragging Alex Iwobi, Ahmed Musa urges Nigerians

Ahmed Musa

Ahmed Musa, the captain of the Super Eagles, has stood up for midfielder Alex Iwobi, who has been the focus of abuse from home fans after Nigeria’s 2023 Afcon final loss 1-2 to the hosts Cote d’Ivoire.

Following Nigeria’s loss, supporters from Ghana, Angola, and South Africa took to social media to ridicule the three-time champions.

Musa said that it is unjust and incorrect to hold a single player responsible for the team’s issues in an Instagram post.

Ahmed responded to the cyberattacks on Iwobi by writing;

‘’Dear fans, I want to please urge you to halt the cyber-bullying directed towards Alex Iwobi. Cyber bullying is not just a violation of decency but also a serious crime. It’s hypocritical to claim that football unites us while engaging in such behavior.

Losing a game is undoubtedly tough, but targeting a single player for the team’s shortcomings is unfair and unjust. We win as a team, and we lose as a team. Alex gave his all on the field, just like every member of our squad.

Instead of spreading negativity, let’s show genuine love and support to our players. They need our encouragement now more than ever. Let’s uplift each other and stand united, both in victory and defeat. 🇳🇬 THANKS”
