Kano Pillars get full house ahead of new season

All newly registered players of Kano Pillars for the 2014/2015 season and CAF Champions League are ready for the new season.

According to the media officer of the club, Rilwan Malikawa, all players who joined up in the off season, except Christian Obiozor, currently with Super Eagles are in Kano.

“It’s very much encouraging that about 98 percent of the new players we recruited this year are in camp and have indicated their interest to play for the  success of the club.” Malikawa said.

Executive welcome

General Manager of the club, Babangida Umar has already welcomed the players to their new home, assuring them that the management would not relent its effort to give their welfare top priority.

He urged both the players and technical crew to work as a family so as to maintain the status quo of the club as a champion.

He also appealed to them to co-operate with continental committee that had been set up by the state government to oversee the club’s forthcoming CAF hampions’ League activities.

Kano Pillars have won the Nigeria Professional Football League the last three years, equaling the record of Iwuanyanwu Nationale in the late 80s and Enyimba between 2001 and 2003.

However, they have not had much of success on the continent, their best outing being in 2009 when they got to the semifinal, losing to Heartland FC over two legs
