Last time out, it was Ghanaian Asante Kotoko and now it’s ASC Jaraaf of Senegal.
For the second consecutive season, Kano Pillars have failed to go past the preliminary round of the CAF Interclub competitions.
Last season, Ghanaian Asante Kotoko knocked Pillars out of CAF Champions League preliminary round on a 4-3 aggregate. Although Kano won the first leg at home 3-2, they went on to lose the second leg in Ghana by 2-0.
And many would have thought the Sai Masu Gida side will perform better this time around considering their successful transfer business and the promises made by players and management team before the first leg in Senegal and even after they lost, but again, it’s the same story.
Kano Pillars players and officials won the two legged tie with their mouths and even the competition itself going by what the players said prior to the match but again, the result today shows you can’t win in modern day football with words of the mouth rather your performance on the pitch of play determines what you get.
It ended between Kano Pillars of Nigeria and ASC Jaraaf of Senegal 1-3 on aggregate, the second leg finishing 0-0 in Kaduna after Pillars lost the first leg 3-1 in Senegal.
As usual, we expect the excuses from the management team which we are used to but we still can’t blame them because you can only give what you have.
The results today shows the level of our football and where we ranked on the continent as Plateau United were also bundled out of CAF Champions League.
