“I am very happy for Musa , ” Rohr told KweséESPN . “It ’ s good for him to go to a club where he is playing than to a club where he is not playing .
“The assistant coach at Leicester (Jacky Bonnevay ) is someone I know , and he is sad that Musa has to go , ” the German coach continued . “He saw him training and he was very happy. ”
“I do not say that [ Musa’ s international career will be jeopardised by his move to Saudi Arabia ], ” Rohr concluded .
“He is an important player for us , and he is going to a club where he plays, that ’ s important .
“It ’ s better for us that he plays all the time than he stays on the bench. ”Musa managed just 21 Premier League appearances – of which seven were starts – after moving to Leicester from CSKA Moscow in 2016 .
