Why I Returned To Kano Pillars – Ahmed Musa
Super Eagles captain Ahmed Moussa revealed the reason for his decision to return to his former team, the Kanoo Pillars.
On Tuesday, Kano Pillars confirmed that Musa would return to them after he signed an agreement until the end of the season.
Musa’s agreement includes a clause allowing him to leave when and if he can find a club in Europe.
He joined as an elite player in the Nigerian Football League (NPFL) with the aim of boosting his image as well as helping Moussa maintain his fitness as he continues his search for a European club.
The 28-year-old, who has been a free agent since leaving Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nasr team in October, has received offers from England, Russia and Turkey.
Speaking on the go, former Leicester striker, Cesca, told BBC Sport Africa: “Anything that improves the image of Nigerian football is something I strive for, and I have a special place in my heart.
“It is the team that helped me become a professional soccer player today, so this is more than just football but it is a very strong bond.”
During his first spell with the Pillars, Musa scored 18 goals to end up as the top scorer in the 2009/10 NPFL season.
Musa played his 96th match for Nigeria in their 3-0 win over Lesotho in Lagos in the African Cup of Nations final match at Super Eagles at Taslim Balogun Stadium.
