Super Eagles Skipper Ahmed Musa Gifts N2M To 1996 Olympic Me

Ahmed Musa, Super Eagles' skipper has gifted the Atlanta 1996 Olympic medalist Kingsley Obiekwu N2 million after reports of his financial problem.

Kingsley played as a defender during his football days as part of the Nigerian national team that won the Olympics gold medal at Atlanta in 1996.

The 47-year-old retired player played his club games at Go Ahead Eagles (Netherlands), Al-Ahli (UAE) and Egyptian side Al-Masry before returning to Enugu Rangers in Nigeria for his final playing days.

After his retirement, he coached Ingas FC in Enugu for 4 years and later at USS Krake. 

Earlier in February, Obiekwu was seen driving his car for commercial use which he explained was a result of a financial crisis and he had to feed his family.

He lamented that so many Nigerian clubs he worked for as a coach owe him and he had no choice but to become a commercial driver.

Ahmed Musa has come to his aid donating N2 million to him.

This act has brought praises to the former Leicester City player, with many calling him the 'best Nigerian player ever'.
