Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa announced on Tuesday he has undergone a successful surgery, Pnosports.com reports.

Musa had the surgery at the Acıbadem Kayseri Hospital after the injury he suffered in  Sivasspor’s 2-1 defeat to Ankaragucu before the international break.

The injury forced him to miss Nigeria’s international friendly against Algeria on Tuesday night in Oran.

“I just want to express my heartfelt appreciation to Allah for a successful surgery on my left arm,”Musa posted on his Instagram page.

“As we all know, no surgery is too minor, so I’m grateful for the competent doctors assigned to me for a job well done.

”Also to you all, for your messages, prayers and words of encouragement. I hope to be back on the field soon stronger and absolutely better.” he wrote.

The winger is expected to spend time on the sidelines before returning to action for his club.
