Why Musa won’t travel for away matches – Kano Pillars charman
The chairman of Kano Pillars, Surajo Yahaya, says Super Eagles skipper, Ahmed Musa, won’t be available for most away games due to unsafe roads.
This means the high-profile signing will miss over 80 per cent of Pillars’ trips as the second stanza of the Nigeria Professional Football League begins April 28.
However, Yahaya affirmed that the former Leicester City star will be available for every home fixture.
“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 said on Monday.
“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.
With the revelation, Musa is expected to make his debut for Pillars on May 5, when the Sai Masu Gida welcome Enyimba.
He’ll miss the team’s next two games against Warri Wolves and Plateau United.
