Coach Ibrahim Musa of Kano Pillars FC has bemoaned his team’s current position in the Nigeria Professional Football League after 22 rounds of matches in the ongoing 2019/2020 campaign, AOIFootball.com reports.
In an exclusive chat with AOIFootball.com shortly after the Kano landlords defeated giant-killers, Dakkada Int’l FC, the former Wambai United FC of Kano tactician stated that he is not impressed with his side’s position on the log, adding that the team’s initial target prior to the commencement of the season was to maintain a top 3 positioning.
“I’m not very happy with our current position on the NPFL table,” said the current Aiteo Cup champion.
“Our target has been to remain within the first 3 positions on the table, and possibly emerge champions,” he added.
The Sai Masu Gida side, as Kano Pillars FC is fondly called, currently occupy the 7th position on the log, after experiencing a very slow start to the season, and the gaffer attributes their current state to loss of some key players to long term injuries.
“We’ve been battling with long term injury problems in the team, and that has affected our performance in the long run.
“No less than 7 of our first team players are down with injuries, and some of them are out for the season,” concluded coach Musa.
