Ahmed Musa has turned down salary talks and will play Kano Pillars for free

The head of the Nigerian Premier League, Shehu Deco, has revealed that Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has refused to talk about the salary after he agreed to join his childhood club, Kano Pillars, for a second term until the end of the season.

Former Leicester City winger CSKA Moscow, 28, signed the four-time Nigeria champion on Thursday 15 April as part of the League Management Company (LMC) Elite Players Program, which encourages top Nigerian international players to play for local clubs.

LMC president Shehu Deco explained the terms of the deal and told ESPN that the program works in two ways. The club can identify and sign these players, or the LMC itself can sign the player and assign them to a club of their choice.

According to Shehu, the center has activated the second option for Moussa.

“We talked to him about coming home to play, and as someone who is always ready to return the favor, he didn’t hesitate,” Deco said.

“Once the agreement was signed, it was up to him to decide which club to play with. A number of clubs wanted him. We put everything in front of him and he made a decision to go to the Kano Pillars.

LMC chairman also revealed that Musa rejected any talk about bonuses and decided to play for free.

“We haven’t talked much about it. Musa is someone who is more concerned about giving back to the club he made and he’s not coming here to do it for the money. He’s not getting paid to play at the Pillars. That’s what Deco said.”

The club unveiled the Nigeria captain on Thursday, April 15th, and could play their first game as early as 28 April, when the Pillars travel to take on Warri Wolves.
