Kano Pillars new high-profile signing, Ahmed Musa, is set to miss a larger part of the team’s away matches as the Nigeria Professional Football League resumes April 28.
The announcement of the Super Eagles captain as Pillars’ new signing elicited excitement among fans of the domestic league, but it was gathered that the former Leicester City forward told the club’s management that he would not be available for away games.
The chairman of the club, Surajo Yahaya confirmed that the player would only be available for every home fixture, he would, therefore not be part of most of their away games.
“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.
“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 explained.
However, Musa is expected to make his debut for Pillars on May 5, as they look forward to welcome Enyimba. He will, therefore, miss the team’s next two games against Warri Wolves and Plateau United.
