Rohr Defends Musa After Handshake Controversy : He's A Very Disciplined PlayerSuper Eagles coach Gernot Rohr has refused to criticize one of the most experienced players in his squad, Ahmed Musa, following his conflict with the CSKA Moscow coach Viktor Goncharenko in the 25th round of matches in the Russian Premier League.

It would be recalled that the Leicester City loanee was not pleased that he was substituted in the 58th minute against Dynamo Moscow and refused to shake hands with the Belarusian manager when he left the pitch.

Though Rohr has publicly defended Musa, the German should be aware of his disciplinary problems, with the striker threatening to quit the Super Eagles camp after the captain's armband was handed to Eddy Onazi before the friendly against Senegal in March 2017.

''We do not know what happened between Musa and Goncharenko, so we can not comment on the incident with the handshake,'' Rohr told Championat.com's Daniil Borozdin.

''I will only note that Ahmed is a very disciplined player and an important member of the Nigerian national team.

''This is one of our most experienced players, the team leader. Never before has he been seen in the negative impact on our team.''

Musa has scored two goals in eleven starts for CSKA Moscow since his return to the capital outfit in the January transfer window.
