Aiteo Cup winners Kano Pillars will enjoy a good run in this season’s CAF Confederation Cup and it’s a bet a former Enyimba player, Victor Ezeji, is willing to make.
Although Pillars have their work cut out, with a preliminary round tie against Ghana’s Asante Kotoko, Ezeji is convinced the 4-time NPFL champions have the motivation to go far in the competition.
“The good thing about Kano Pillars is that they have been in the continent before, they’ve also been playing; they didn’t shut down like every other team and went on holiday.
“They’ve been playing, so, Pillars will always have an edge against other teams in the continent.
“If they take it serious and talk to the players to go all out I believe they will succeed because they’ve got the personnel to achieve that,” the former player told footballlive.ng.
