Unsafe roads: Musa opts out of Pillars away games
Kano Pillars has announced that Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa will miss most of their away games when the second stanza of the Nigeria Professional Football League begins April 28.
This was confirmed in a statement by the Chairman of the club, Surajo Yahaya.
In the statement, Mr.Yahaya noted that Musa will be available for every home fixtures but would only attend away games if he could travel by air.
“Ahmed Musa is a big player and at the moment we know the economic situation of the country and the bad roads in some regions. He is going to honour all our home matches and if there is an available flight in the state we have an away game, then he is going to attend,” Yahaya told Punch.
“He did not say that he’s totally going to be unavailable for our games on the road, but he is going to attend those matches by flight, but for the games that are close by, like a game at Katsina or Bauchi, he is ready to go. But we need to provide good facilities for him,” Yahaya added.
The former Leicester City and CSKA Moscow winger, who has been a free agent since parting ways with Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr in October, rejoined his boyhood club Kano Pillars for a second stint until the end of the season.
He is expected to make his debut for Pillars on May 5, when the Sai Masu Gida welcomes Enyimba.
