Kano - Kano Pillars’ coach, Babaganaru Muhammad, on Saturday described the team's 5-1 victory over visiting Olympic Bangui of Central Africa Republic in the  CAF Champions League as a well deserved.

Muhammad commended the determination and passion shown by the players in the match played at Sani Abacha stadium in Kano.

The coach said his players would continue to be focused during this league season.

“I am very happy with the boys’ performances and I thank God for the well-deserved victory because the visitors gave us a good fight to the end,’’ he said.
