With exactly one week to the Kick-off of the Nigeria Professional Football League 2019-2020 season, players and management of Kano Pillars FC have arrived Kaduna for a close camping exercises.
The decision to camp in Kaduna prior to league Kick off is to ensure maximum concentration as the team rounds up preparations for the new season.
Technical Adviser of the team, Ibrahim Musa has said that camping in Kaduna will enable his team avoid unnecessary distraction from family and friends.
According to him if allowed to stay back in Kano, friends and family members may not allow the players to concentrate fully.
“We are in Kaduna to round up our preparations for the coming season. This is not the first time we are camping in Kaduna. Kaduna is now like our second home.
“Our decision to camp away from Kano is to ensure we concentrate fully on our preparations. We don’t want any distractions that may come from our family members or friends.
“We have already lined up some friendly matches to test our readiness for the new season. Although we are ready for the kick-off, we want to make sure we are completely ready,” he said
