Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa signed this week a short-term deal with the four-time Nigeria Professional Football League Champions Kano Pillars. And Musa vowed to lead the side to glory while receiving his jersey number on Thursday evening at the club’s Secretariat in Kano, Kano State, Nigeria.
Shortly after signing the contractual agreement form, the former Africa Cup of Nations winner said he is back at the club to contribute his own quota up to the end of the 2020/21 NPFL season.
He promised to do his possible best to see the Sai Masu Gida emerge as the champions of the current NPFL campaign.
“I left Pillars over 10-years ago without winning the league then.” Musa said. “But now, by God’s grace, I will make a special record by leading the club to the Nigeria Professional Football League title.”
Musa started his football career with JUTH FC. And he was loaned to Kano Pillars, before sealing a deal with Dutch side VVV-Venlo at 17 years of age.
According to the former Leicester City forward, a lot of people failed to understand the reason behind his move to the club. And he said Musa has a mission which he hoped to accomplish sooner or later.
Musa thanked the management, players and fans of the club for sustaining the relationship between himself and the club since his first registration as Pillars player in 2009.
On his part, club chairman Jambul expressed his delight at the decision of Musa to rejoin the club 10-years after. And he has urged the winger to feel at home as always.
The seasoned football Administrator urged the dazzling forward to use his vast of experience to move the club forward.
Jambul also assured that the club would release Musa any time he got an offer outside the shores of Nigeria.
The occasion was rounded up with the unveiling of Ahmed Musa. And he was handed with the iconic Number 7 jersey at the club.
The Kano Pillars are joint-leaders of the Nigeria Professional Football League halfway through the season, with 36 points from 19 matches.
