Community Shield: Musa leads Leicester against Man U

NIGERIAN international, Ahmed Musa, is on the verge of making history today as he steps into the legendary Wembley Stadium, when Leicester City faces Manchester United in a Community Shield clash.

Musa, who emerged the Foxes’ £16million club record signing after scoring a brace in the 2-4 loss to FC Barcelona earlier last week, believes he has what it takes to shine in the English top flight.

“I will do my best to do even more. I am very happy to be coming to the Premier League right now,” Musa said as he looks forward to having a robust partnership with Jamie Vardy.

“I have settled down well, as you can see,” the former CSKA Moscow forward said. “Yes, we can challenge again because we are like a family.

Unarguably, Musa has become the toast of many Leicester fans after his feat against Barca last Wednesday and he is set to impress manager, Claudio Ranieri today when the Foxes confront the reigning FA champions now under the tutelage of flamboyant portuguese manager, Jose Mourinho.

Meanwhile, new Man U signing, Zlatan Ibrahimovic told MUTV that he will put everything into the game saying he is after winning laurels for the Reds.

“Let’s see. I mean I believe it’s the first trophy game against Leicester. One game, one trophy. I’m used to winning trophies. I didn’t come here to waste time.

“That is the first trophy game and that is the first trophy we will bring home. For me, every trophy is very serious. I have collected 30 trophies and I want to collect more of them. I’m not satisfied until I collect everything. That’s what we play for. I play to win.

“Wherever I came, they also play to win. I didn’t come here to lose time. I came here to win. I believe the philosophy is the same for the club, especially a club like this. They are made to win.

“That is the way it is. The first game, one game and one trophy. I’ve played with the national team in England against Sweden and it’s a huge stadium so I’m looking forward to that also,” the former PSG forward said.
