Super Eagles of Nigeria captain, Ahmed Musa, has joined Nigeria Professional Football League side, Kano Pillars, in a deal that will run until the end of the 2020/2021 campaign. The 2013 Africa Cup of Nations winner has been without a club since October 25, 2020 after parting ways with Saudi Pro League side, Al Nassr. Musa now joins the Sai Masu Gida in a second stint after starting out as a professional with the Kano-based club, finishing the 2009 Nigeria Professional Football League season as highest goal scorer with 18 goals before moving to the Netherlands to join VVV Venlo.
The deal for the former Leicester City of England star was confirmed by Kano Pillars through an official statement on its website:
Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has sensationally returned to 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…the club have agreed to the deal after due consultations with the player and the League Management Company of Nigeria (LMC) whom stand as a mediator to the deal
Signing Musa is a huge boast to the club’s ambition to win the Nigerian league title as they currently occupy the second spot behind Kwara United. Musa is expected to replicate the form that saw European sides like VVV Venlo, CSKA Moscow, and Leicester City cash in on him at the Sani Abacha Stadium. He will be unveiled by Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje (Kano State governor) when all necessary documentations are finalised.
