“We were very happy when we heard the draw that we are going to play against Asante Kotoko, Kano Pillars is also a big club here in Nigeria just as Kotoko and we are aware of Kotoko’s strength so we are preparing. Just as Kotoko and Hearts of Oak are the biggest clubs in Ghana, so is Pillars also with Enyimba FC here, so we are expecting an interesting clash.
I have heard and seen some of them (the Kotoko signings) because we do get the news here always, we have been talking about Kotoko here about a week ago even before the draw yesterday pared us with them, so we are aware of their signings.
It’s been four – five years since Kano Pillars have been in the Champions League and that is the club’s needed competition, so our target now is to go beyond the group stages, that’s our target.
I thank everyone from Ghana for the support given me from day one, I will do everything I can to help Pillars and Insha Allahu we will eliminate Asante Kotoko.
