Pillars charge players to redouble efforts
@mansur_112 Kano Pillars are seeking revitalised efforts and commitments from its playing staff after Sunday’s 2-1 defeat from reigning NPFL champions Enyimba at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt which leaves the club’s hopes of lifting the 2015/2016 league title in jeopardy. Speaking to Daily Trust yesterday, Pillars’ Media Officer Idris Malikawa said the club’s standpoint is that the players have no reason to be losing games especially the last one against the People’s Elephant which they clearly should’ve won but ended up on the losing side.
“It is very worrying at the moment and the state government and fans are concerned immensely, the players have to look at themselves in the mirror and redouble their efforts because they are one of the most comfortable in the NPFL.
“The government pays them when due and in terms of transport and accommodation they get the best, so there’s no reason for poor performance,” Malikawa noted.
The two-time CAF Champions League winners made history with Sunday’s win as it is their first ever double against ‘Masu Gida’ who were looking to wrestle the title from the arch rivals.
Sunday’s results leaves coach Mohammed Babaganaru’s side fifth on the table on 39 points, seven points behind table toppers Enugu Rangers who have 46 points after 26 games.
