No Disciplinary Action by Leicester City Against Ahmed Musa After Wife-Beating Allegation

English Premier League (EPL) Champions will not take action against their striker, Nigerian International, Ahmed Musa after being quizzed by the police in the early hours of Wednesday over a domestic incidence widely reported to be a case of wife-beating.

The Independent (UK) reports that Leicester will not take any disciplinary action against Musa:

After receiving an allegation of domestic abuse against the Nigeria international, police spoke to neighbours about the Leicester City player, before he returned home later that night.

Two plain-clothed policewomen then arrested Musa around 1am on Wednesday morning and taken for questioning after being accused of beating his wife, Jamila, but was released without charge.

“We are aware that Ahmed Musa has today cooperated with a police inquiry relating to a disturbance in the early hours of this morning,” a Leicester City spokesman said.

“’The inquiry has since been closed and no further action is to be taken.

“We see no reason for formal action internally, though Ahmed will be given the opportunity to discuss the matter with football management when the squad returns.”

Ahmed Musa has had a difficult time getting into the EPL Champions starting 11 consistently after his move from CSKA Moscow last summer.
