His return to Kano Pillars comes nearly a decade after he parted ways with the club to join VVV Venlo in Netherland in 2011.
An official statement from the Kano Pillars website read: “Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, has sensationally returned to Kano Pillars FC for the remainder of the 2020/21 Nigeria Professional Football League season (NPFL),”
“Musa previously played for the Pride of Kano in 2009 where he ended the season as the top scorer in the Nigeria Professional Football League with 18 goals before moving to VVV-Venlo in the Netherlands.”
According to Kano Pillars, the deal to have Musa back was agreed upon after ‘due consultations’ with the player and the League Management Company ‘who stand as a mediator to the deal’.
