Super Eagles vice-captain William Troost-Ekong has led his teammates in sending support messages to the captain Ahmed Musa who recently had surgery on his left arm.

Musa, 29, announced via social media on Wednesday that the surgery was successful, adding that he was looking forward to returning to the field.

The former Leicester City player picked up an injury while featuring for Sivasspor in a 2-1 Turkish Super Lig defeat to Ankaragucu at Eryaman Stadyumu on September 18.

Reacting to Musa’s post on Instagram, Troost-Ekong who is himself sidelined due to injury said in the comments’ section, “Skippo! I wish you a good recovery.”

Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, who could return to action this weekend for Leicester City following an injury spell, wrote, “Quick recovery Gov.”

Napoli forward Victor Osimhen wrote, “Come back stronger Skippo.”

Odion Ighalo, who plies his trade in Saudi Arabia, commented, “Get well soon Governor.”

Oghenekaro Etebo wrote, “Get well soon.”

Ex-internationals such as Daniel Amokachi, Ikechukwu Uche and Peter Utaka, also commented. Amokachi prayed for quick recovery in Hausa, “Allah ya Kara Lafiya.”

Musa penned a two-year deal with Sivasspor on September 2 following the termination of his contract with Fatih Karagumuruk.
