Fulham manager Marco Silva admits 'mixed feelings' after Alex Iwobi and Calvin Bassey reached the AFCON final with Nigeria's Super Eagles.
Musa's plea comes amidst a wave of unwarranted online criticism targeted at teammate Alex Iwobi, highlighting a moment of reflection for fans and players alike.
This gesture of solidarity is a testament to the team's collective ethos, emphasizing that in football, the bonds of team spirit transcend the outcomes on the pitch.
A Stand Against Cyber Bullying
Ahmed Musa's heartfelt appeal to the fans underscores the gravity of cyberbullying and its impact on players. "Dear fans, I want to please urge you to halt the cyber-bullying directed towards Alex Iwobi.
Cyberbullying is not just a violation of decency but also a serious crime. It’s hypocritical to claim that football unites us while engaging in such behaviour," Musa stated, shedding light on the toxic aftermath of the final's defeat.
His words serve as a reminder of the human aspect behind every player, urging fans to remember the unity and joy that football is supposed to foster.
Unity in Defeat
The solidarity within the Super Eagles is further echoed by Victor Osimhen, who also took to social media to support Iwobi, reinforcing the message that the team stands or falls together.
"We win together, We lose together. We are all one. Some of our fans should do better @alexanderiwobi ❤," Osimhen's post reads, a clear call for empathy and understanding from the fanbase.
These gestures of support not only highlight the strong bond among the players but also serve as a call to action for fans to rally behind their team, in good times and bad.
