Yaro-Yaro Targets Second Title With Pillars

After Sunday’s 4 - 0 pounding of highly rated Warri Wolves at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano, influential midfielder of Kano Pillars, Ahmed Garba, fondly called Yaro-Yaro, believes the club is on the verge of winning its second title.
Yaro-Yaro disclosed this to while assessing the performance of the team in Sunday’s epic league clash. 
“All we need to do is pray that we continue with this impressive form,” said the former Nigeria International and Denmark based star.
“We understand ourselves in Kano Pillars because we’ve been playing together for sometime,” he added.
Wolves got more than what they bargained for in a match that lived up to its rating despite the top fixtures in Sunday’s English Premier League with Chelsea and Manchester United struggling for the big prize.
Interestingly, Pillars played without league revelation and highest goalscorer, Ahmed Musa, who is still nursing an injury.
Speaking on the quality of players in Pillars, Yaro-Yaro said: “People don’t know that we have many good players in Pillars. We missed him on match day and we are expecting him to return back soon.”
With the absence of Musa, Pillars coach, Salisu Yusuf stated that the likes of Gambo Muhammad and Moses Ogaga would cover for the missing Musa.
Indeed, the players confirmed Yusuf’s statement as Muhammad got a brace while Ogaga and Solomon Okpako got one goal each to complete the annihilation of Wolves.
Like Musa, Yaro-Yaro was unavailable for selection on match day. Reacting on his absence, the former Denmark based player said: “You don’t change a winning team”
The 4 – 0 defeat is the worst suffered by Warri Wolves since joining the elite class in Nigeria’s Premier League.
