Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa and Ade Akinbiyi have been included in ‘ The 50 worst players in Premier League history’ by FourFourTwo.
FourFourTwo listed the Eagles captain and British- born Nigerian , Akinbiyi , as one of those whose careers failed to flourish in the EPL.
Musa, who occupies number 44 on the list , joined Leicester City in 2016 and scored five goals in 33 games in two seasons .
The magazine stated , “In the glow of their Premier League -winning season , Leicester broke their transfer record to bring Musa to England for £ 16. 6 m from CSKA Moscow .
“ The Nigerian forward has always been an unremarkable and patchy player , who most importantly , didn ’ t have a natural place in the Foxes side .
At no point in his 18 months at the King Power Stadium (33 games, five goals ) did Musa’ s transfer ever look likely to be remotely successful . ”
Akinbiyi , who was born in Hackney, England and has one cap Super Eagles, is on number 29 on the list .
“ Ade Akinbiyi , Yes , we admit it , this has plenty to do with that game for Leicester against Liverpool .
Some 20 years later , it ’ s still hard to watch , the wild shanks , the miscued headers, his sad little face , ” FourFourTwo added .
“ It would be remiss not to point out that Akinbiyi had a thoroughly respectable career outside the Premier League .
“ Burnley, Wolves and Bristol City fans will all remember him fondly (ish ), but the memory of that day at Filbert Street is just too vivid .
Top – tier spells either side of his two seasons at Leicester – at Norwich and Sheffield United – yielded no goals in 18 appearances. ”
