Manu Garba, Amokachi eye Kano Pillars Job

21 July 2015, 11:02

Kano - Former Super Eagles assistant coach Daniel Amokachi and Flying Eagles coach Manu Garba have both signified their interest to be the next Kano Pillars coach following the sacking of Okey Emordi.

The reigning Nigerian champions severed ties with Emordi on Monday, after months of rumours the former Enyimba coach would be fired.

And with Pillars set to name a replacement very soon, News24 has gathered that both Amokachi and Garba have positioned themselves to be Okey Emordi’s replacement.

Pillars threw away a three-goal lead against Lobi Stars over the weekend at the Aper Aku Stadium in Makurdi to draw 3-3 with their hosts, forcing the champions to terminate Emordi’s contract.

It remains unclear if Kano Pillars will eventually settle for any of Manu or Amokachi, as News24 has also gathered that the club has received several applications from coaches within and outside Nigeria.

Meanwhile, it is also believed the club may make a move for their former coach, Mohammed Baba Ganaru, who currently handles fellow Premier league side, Nasarawa United.

Kano Pillars have had an indifferent start to the season, as they currently sit 9th on the table with 27 points at the halfway stage of the season.

They have also been eliminated from the CAF Champions League and the Federation Cup.
