TIJANI BABANGIDA: AHMED MUSA has inferior players around him!Former Ajax Amsterdam winger Tijani Babangida has told celebrated Dutch football magazine Voetbal International that the Nigerian striker Ahmed Musa will find it difficult playing for VVV Venlo because of the inferior players around him.

As exclusively revealed by allnigeriasoccer.com, Babangida tried taking Musa to Ajax through his agent but the 18-year-old ignored his advances and refused to answer phone calls and reply to his text messages.

''That boy (Musa) is the talent of Nigeria, he has unlimited possibilities. Really a shame! The high standard of Ajax he would have coped, I'm sure. Now he must battle relegation with VVV Venlo with inferior players around him and that's difficult,'' says Babangida to Voetbal International.

Musa has played seven games in the league and is waiting for his first goal.

Tijani Babangida, who was Olympic champion with Nigeria in 1996, now runs his own academy in Nigeria.
