The Super Eagles Gaffar, Gernot Rohr has said that he was happy with Ahmed Musa’s decision to sign for Nigeria professional football league side, the Kano Pillars, reports Persecondnews.

Musa signed a short-term deal with the former Nigerian champions on Tuesday and he is expected to leave anytime he receives offers from Europe.

Musa has not played competitive club football since his exit from Saudi Arabia Professional League side, Al Shabab, in October.

The erstwhile Leicester City and CSKA Moscow winger almost joined Premier League side West Bromwich Albion back in January, but the deal collapsed due to his wage demand.

“I am very happy for Ahmed Musa to be able to play again with his old club of Kano Pillars,” Rohr told journalists.

The Franco-German coach concluded that joining Pillars will allow the Super Eagles Captain to keep his shape ahead of the FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
