CSKA Moscow of Russia returnee, Ahmed Musa scored a goal on his debut back at the club and quickly declared that he is fully focused and determined to help the club shoot back on top in the Russian Premier League.
Following his return to The Armymen, after sealing a six-month loan deal from Leicester City of England, Musa said his main target is to help CSKA take another surge up the table.
Musa has been handed back his No 7 shirt and he said he believes the coach will play him as he has played him previously.
He said he believes a week’s intensive training will get him back to fighting shape, and showed he is there for business with his goal in a friendly with Danish club FC Nordsjaelland on Friday.
Musa, who says CSKA are in his family, was warmly welcomed by his teammates led by captain Igor Akinfeev and compatriot Aaron Samuel, who recorded a special video on his return.
Musa said he is confident CSKA will still mount a big challenge for the Russian championship though they are far adrift of leaders Lokomotiv Moscow, who are 10 points clear of his fifth-placed CSKA on 45 points after 20 matches.
Musa recalled that CSKA were also in a similar situation a few years ago, but they pushed hard and went on to be champions again.
He declared with confidence: “We had a challenge like that some years ago, and we came from behind to win the league.
“This would be tough. We need to keep ourselves working very hard and we will see at the end of the season where we end up.”
