Former Kwara Stars goalkeeper Abdulsalam Musa is dead. According to reports, he died on Friday night, January 19, 2018 in his hometown in Kwara state.

Abdulsalam Musa was a joy to watch during his active playing days when he was at the then Kwara stars, but he never made it to the top of his career despite his struggles.

He was born on March 13, 1979, and started his football career in his home town in Offa, Kwara state, Nigeria.

Musa began his football career at Offa United football club, and it was his superb performances then that paved ways for him at defunct Okin Biscuit FC.

He later left Okin Biscuit FC for Eko United where he got an injury and was sidelined for almost four years.

After recuperating from a career threatening injury, Musa could no longer continue his football career and decided to turn into coaching.

He started his coaching career with Avalon FC of Offa in Kwara state in 2014 before the name of the club was changed to Offa FC in 2017.

The club are on the verge of securing promotion to the Nigeria Natioanal League (NNL) before the untimely death of their coach Abdulsalam Musa.
Musa according to Alhaji Wasiu Okoro Lawal who is a member of the Kwara Football Association was said to have complained of headache on Friday night, January 19, but died after he was rushed to the hospital.

”He complained of headache, and when they took him to the hospital, he died not up to one hour,” he said.
