AFCON 2023: Yusuf fit to replace injured Ndidi – Gusau


Nigeria Football Federation, NFF President, Ibrahim Gusau believes Alhassan Yusuf is the right fit to replace injured Leicester City star Wilfred Ndidi.

Ndidi will miss the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations due to injury.

Coach Jose Peceiro called up Yusuf as his replacement.

This is the first time the Royal Antwerp midfielder has been involved with the Super Eagles.

Despite lacking experience at international level, Gusau supported the 23-year-old as a substitute for Ndidi at AFCON.

“There is no tension because we know that we played a lot of games without Ndidi and won many games without Ndidi. We played a lot of games with Ndidi and unexpectedly lost, so This is not about Ndidi, this is about the Nigerian national team,” Gusau told Totori News.

“Yussuf, the boy we just brought in, is also doing great in the team. When we played against Barcelona, ​​you could see the performance he showed in the win against Barcelona in the Champions League.”
