Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa has formally signed a short-term deal with four-time Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Champions, Kano Pillars.
The club said this is in a statement by its Media Officer, Rilwan Malikawa, on Friday in Kano.
According to the statement, Musa signed the short term deal at the club’s secretariat on Thursday.
Shortly after signing the deal, the Super Eagles captain said he was back at the club to contribute his own quota up to the end of the 2020/21 NPFL season.
He promised to do his best to see the club emerge as the champions of the current NPFL campaign.
“I left Pillars over 10 years ago without winning the league but now, by God’s grace, I will make a special record by leading the club to the NPFL title,” he said.
He thanked the management, players and fans of the club for sustaining the relationship.
The chairman of the club, Surajo Shuaibu, expressed delight at the decision of Musa to rejoin the club 10 years after and urged him to feel at home as always.
