The newly appointed coach of Nigeria Professional Football League side, Kano Pillars, Kadiri Ikhana, has made a promise that he would return the club back to the top.
Coach Ikhana made the promise as he was unveiled and presented to the media in Kano on Tuesday.
“I am happy to be back at home here in Kano and I really appreciate the new management for considering me for the job here again.
“That means the Kano people remember the good work which I did here in the past and I am back to take them to the top of football again,” Ikhana said.
Ikhana who led Pillars to their first Nigeria League title in 2008 is now starting his fourth stint with the Kano club which he first handled 25 years ago.
Once voted as the best coach in Africa, Ikhana arguably is one of the most successful coaches in the Nigeria league, having handled most top teams and won various trophies with them.
Since winning the league title in the 2013/14, Kano Pillars’ best finish on the log is the seventh place achieved last season by Coach Mohammed Babaganaru who has since crossed over to join Wikki Tourists.
Ikhana was given a year contract.
