Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa has been ruled out of all away matches to be played by Kano Pillars in the Nigeria Professional Football League.
Naija News understands that NPFL games will resume on April 28, 2021, and Pillars are considerate of the professional player’s safety of life, hence he will not join them on away games.
The development was confirmed in a statement on Tuesday (today) by the Chairman of the club, Surajo Yahaya.
Yahaya explained in the statement that Musa will surely play on 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,” said Yahaya.
He added; “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,”
Recall that the Al Nassr and Leicester City player joined Kano Pillars some days ago following his contract termination with the Saudi Arabia club in October 2020.
Meanwhile, the President of the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA), Gianni Infantino, has rejected the newly introduced European Super League games, Naija News reports.
