Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has given reasons on why he may make a sensational return to the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Kano Pillars nine years after he left club.
Speaking with newsmen in a recent interview, the 28-year-old disclosed that he has been without a club since he left Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr by mutual consent in October 2020, adding that the failure to get a club in the January transfer window, has made him to reconsider joining Kano Pillars on a short-term basis to maintain his fitness.
According to Musa, the governor of Kano, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje and Shehu Dikko, Chairman of the League Management Company (LMC), proposed the move to him.
“After speaking with the governor and chairman of the LMC I’m considering to play some games for Kano pillars,” the former Leicester City player told BBC Sport Africa.
“Anything that improves the image of Nigerian football is something that I strive to embark on and Kano Pillars holds a special place in my heart.
“It’s the team that helped me become the professional footballer I am today, so this is more than just football but a very strong bond.
Musa started his career with GBS Football Academy and played for Kano Pillars between 2009 and 2012 before moving abroad.
