Reappointed coach of the Nigeria Professional Football League champions, Mohammed Babaganaru has sent warning to table toppers, Enyimba FC and Sunshine Stars of Akure stating that his team Kano Pillars are back among title contenders after walloping Shooting Stars SC 4-1 on Sunday.
Masu Gida are now placed 5th on the league table, and just 6 points below Sunshine Stars at the top. Babaganaru believes Pillars are genuine title contenders now.
“We are genuine title contenders again,” Babaganaru said after the win against 3SC.
“Our performance against Shooting Stars must be a warning to Enyimba, who we will play against on Wednesday in Aba.”
But the former Nasarawa United gaffer admits that it will be tough going against the Aba Elephants and Sunshine Stars for the title.
“Enyimba and Sunshine will give us a good fight (for the title). They have good quality,”he said.
Kano Pillars play Enyimba on Wednesday in a week 24 match. It is going to be real test for Babaganaru’s side having gone unbeaten since taking charge of the Northern club..
