Abuja - Kano Pillars Football Club on Wednesday in Kano said it had placed 12 of its players on transfer while retaining 23 others ahead of the 2013/2014 season.
The club’s media officer, Rilwanu Malikawa, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that the club’s governing board gave approval for the transfers and retention.
"The approval for the transfer of the players and the retention of other players was given during the board’s meeting held in Kano on Tuesday and presided over by the club chairman, Abba Yola," he said.
On the issue of a new technical adviser for the club, Malikawa said the board had received the report of a technical committee on the two coaches it interviewed recently.
He however explained that the board had not taken any decision on who would be the next coach for the club.
NAN reports that two coaches, Kadiri Ikhana and Okey Emordi, attended the selection interview for the post, following the resignation of Baba Ganaru.
NAN reports that the new season in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL), a competition which Pillars won for a second consecutive time last season, is scheduled to begin next January.
