Ahmed Musa Reveals Real Reason He Rejoined Kano Pillars

Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has disclosed why he decided to sign for his former Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) club Kano Pillars until the end of the season.

In Musa’s agreement with the Caliphate club, a clause included allows him to leave when and if he can find a club in Europe.

Speaking on the move, the former Leicester forward, who is a free agent since leaving Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr in October, 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.”
