Ahmed Musa gets new club, leaves Kano Pillars

Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa, is set to join Turkish Super Lig club Fatih Karagumruk in the coming hours, according to Fanatik.

Musa will join as a free agent from Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Kano Pillars.

The Karagumruk outfit are said to have beaten their rivals Galatasaray and Besiktas to the signing of Musa.

The 28-year-old spent the last three months with Kano Pillars.

Musa signed a short term deal with the Nigerian club, which has allowed him leave for Turkey.

The move would mark a return to Europe for the 28-year-old, who left Leicester City for Saudi Arabia’s Al Nassr in 2018.

During his time with the NPFL outfit, he urged Kano Pillars supporters to respect the rules of the game, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The Super Eagles captain who signed for the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side on a temporary deal until the end of the season, featured in the top of the table clash against Akwa United in a matchday 27 clash at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium.

However, the game was marred with violence, as home fans stormed to the pitch after the team’s late goal that would have been the winner was disallowed.

The melee resulted in the suspension of the match with three minutes to go. The remaining minutes were played on Monday morning, but Musa still made his feelings known after the game.

The former Leicester City man took to his Twitter account to urge fans to obey the rules as Sunday’s behaviour does not give the league a good image.

Meanwhile, the League Management Committee (LMC) has fined Pillars ₦5 million for not obeying Covid-19 protocols while they were also ordered to pay ₦2.5 million for the behaviour of their fans.
