Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has made a return to Nigerian club side Kano Pillars FC for the reminder of the 2020/21 Nigeria Professional Football League season (NPFL).
Musa previously played for the Pride of Kano in 2009 where he ended the season as the top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League with 18 goals before moving to VVV-Venlo in the Netherlands.
A statement signed by the media officer of the club, Rilwanu Malikawa on Tuesday and posted on the club’s website revealed that Kano Pillars agreed to sign Musa until the end of the 2020/21 football season.
According to Malikawa, the club agreed to the deal after due consultations with the player and the League Management Company of Nigeria (LMC) who stood as a mediator to the deal.
“The club have received a letter from the League Management Company of Nigeria (LMC) that was signed by the Chief Operating Officer, Malam Salihu Abubakar, that Kano Pillars will sign Ahmed Musa as an Elite player of the league to the end of the season,” the statement read.
He added further that “Kano Pillars FC family are happy to welcome back one of their own and have wished him Allah’s guidance.
“Ahmad Musa is our own and Pillars FC will continue to support him anytime and anywhere he found himself,” Malikawa said.
Part of the contractual agreement reached and which would be documented between Musa and Kano Pillars is……, anytime the player got an offer, he would be released by the club.
Malikawa concluded that after completing all the necessary documentations, Ahmed Musa would be unveiled by the Governor of Kano state, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje before the commencement of the second stanza of the league.
