Pillars Hooks Chadian, Mulls Over Slovenian

One-time Globacom Premier League champion, Kano Pillars, has completed the signing of Chadian striker, Abubakar Tchalet, from Elect Sport N’djamena this month, Naijaligue.blogspot.com understands.
But the player is yet to join the club after completing his N2 million move from his home country club.
Media officer of Kano Pillars, Shehu Adamu, disclosed to Naijaligue.blogspot.com that Tchalet’s services have been secured for a season and he is due to join the CAF Champions League semi-finalist next month when the league resumes after the break for the FIFA Under-17 World Cup.
Adamu said in a telephone interview that the player could not join up with his new team-mates after Kano Pillars secured a deal for him due to engagements with his club and national team.
“He (Tchalet) is now the player of Kano Pillars Football Club. The management of the club signed him earlier this month and he could not join the side since he was still part of his national team and club. But he will be available after the Under-17 World Cup,” Adamu told Naijaligue.blogspot.com.
In another development, the management of the 20072008 Globacom Premier League champion is considering terminating the contract of its Slovenian head coach, Ivo Sajh.
Sajh is just halfway into a 14-month contract he signed with the continental committee of the Kano club.
The Slovenian coach has remained suspended indefinitely by the management following the club’s ouster from this year’s edition of the CAF Champions League in the hands of Heartland Football Club.
But it is being rumoured that his assistant, Mohammed Baba Ganaru, could take charge after Pillars posted an impressive 4-0 win over Heartland FC at the weekend in the Premier League.
Chairman of Kano Pillars, Tukur Babangida, insists that the 56-year-old Slovenian remains suspended until the club decides to recall him and quelled the speculation that Sajh would be fired.
“We don’t have any plan to sack him (Sajh). He has a contract with us that will expire next year. But for now, he is suspended,” Babangida explained to Naijaligue.blogspot.com.
