Musa still learning how to play in England – Leicester coach

Claudio Ranieri, Leicester city manager, says Ahmed Musa must understand how English football is played.

Musa got his second start of the season for the Foxes since making an £18m move from CSKA Moscow, in the English Cup game Tuesday against Chelsea but he was substituted in the 76th minute by Jamie Vardy, as the Foxes lost 4-2 to Chelsea after extra time.

“Ahmed Musa must understand much better the Premier League, but it is okay,”Ranieri said during the post-match press conference.

“For me, it is important to develop all the squad and not just the 14 players. We have a chance to go through to the next round but it wasn’t possible, but it is okay.

“We have to work more and more to give them 90 minutes because when I need them they must be fit 100 percent.

Musa had scored 42 goals in 125 games for former club CSKA Moscow of Russia, and 11 goals in 58 appearances for the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
