Super Eagles skipper and new Pillars forward Ahmed Musa said he has a special bond with NPFL side Kano Pillars and it is one of the reasons he decided to return to the club.
The 28-year-old penned a deal with the Northern club until the end of the season in order to maintain his fitness ahead of the world cup qualifiers.
Musa has been without a club since leaving Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr in October, but he almost joined West Bromwich Albion in January.
Speaking after the official announcement, Musa said he decided to return to Pillars because of the smooth relationship he enjoyed with the club in the past.
“Anything that improves the image of Nigerian football is something that I strive to embark on and Kano Pillars holds a special place in my heart,” the former Leicester City player told BBC.
“It’s the team that helped me become the professional footballer that I am today, so this is more than just football but a very strong bond.”
Musa scored 18 goals for Kano Pillars to finish as top scorer in the 2009/10 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.
