Nigeria International, Ahmed Musa has rubbished rumours that he’s tested positive for Coronavirus. The former Super Eagles threw that suggestion out the window via a post he made on social media.
Following the suspension of the Saudi Arabia Pro League, Musa announced that he was returning to Nigeria via a chartered flight with his family. However, his message was seemingly misconstrued with a section of the media suggesting that he had tested positive for Coronavirus.
The former Leicester man – via Instagram and Twitter – said he had not tested positive but was only following the guidelines set by the government regarding quarantine.
“This is a pandemic taking people’s lives in thousands so it is sad that some people want to use this to gain followers or views on their pages by spreading falsehood. “My family and I came in from Saudi Arabia and decided to follow the government’s rule of isolation for 14 days not because any of us have the virus.
“We are perfectly okay and have not tested positive to the virus. Please don’t fall for the malicious messages circulating about me or my family. Stay safe, maintain social distancing.“
After struggling to find his feet in the English Premier League, Musa moved on the Middle East where he now plays club football.
The African Cup of Nations winner has failed to register any goals this term before the league was suspended. He’s however registered five assists already.
