Flying Eagles star speaks on first League experience

30 November 2015, 08:40

Abuja - Nigeria U20 defender Zaharadeen Bello has recounted his experience of playing professional football for the first time with hometown club, Kano Pillars.

The central defender made his professional debut in the just ended Nigeria Professional Football League season for former champions, Kano Pillars and he has narrated his experience.

"I feel excited that I have played for Kano Pillars. Three, four years ago before I played for the Under-17 national team I was just a fan of the club. I watched Rabiu Ali, Gambo Mohammed and Theophilus Afelokhai back then because they are heroes at the club. Having the opportunity to play with them is a good feeling for me. I am really excited that my dream came to pass," he told npfl.ng.

"Since playing in the league I have got so much encouragement from the players, fans and officials at Kano Pillars. I am impressed by the way I have been treated at Kano Pillars and that has really encouraged me," he said.
