Super Eagles Captain Ahmed Musa Rejoins NPFL’s Kano Pillars
Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has rejoined Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side Kano Pillars FC and will be with the Pillars for the remainder of the 2020/2021 season.
The 28-year-old winger has been a free agent since parting ways with Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr in October 2020.
Musa previously played for the Pride of Kano in 2009 where he ended the season as the top scorer with 18 goals before moving to Dutch side VVV-Venlo.
Musa attracted interest from English Premier League club West Bromwich Albion earlier this year, but he has now surprisingly returned home and rejoined his boyhood club, the Pillars.

The Super Eagles captain has scored 15 goals from 96 international matches for Nigeria.
Kano Pillars media officer Rilwanu Idris Malikawa said the League Management Company has approved the deal for Pillars to sign the Super Eagles winger.
“Ahmad Musa is our own and Pillars FC will continue to support him anytime and anywhere he found himself,” Malikawa said.
Musa’s return to Kano Pillars is one of the best strategies to improve and attract interest in Nigeria’s premium football league.
The club and the player agreed that he would be released anytime he gets an offer outside Nigeria.
Musa would be unveiled by the governor of Kano State Umar Ganduje before the commencement of the second half of the league.
The four-time Nigeria Professional Football League Champions are currently leading the log alongside Kwara Utd with 36 points each from 19 matches.
