Kano Pillars’ forward Adamu Mohammed has stressed that injuries to several first team players is to blame for his side’s exit from the 2015 Caf Champions League after the club fell 5-2 on aggregate to Moghreb Tetouan on Saturday.
Pillars lost 0-4 in the first leg played in Morocco three weeks ago but their 2-1 win on Saturday at the Sani Abacha Stadium was not enough to keep them in the competition.
“It is a sad day in the history of the club. We had wanted to proceed to as far as the group stage but we couldn’t realize our objectives because of some problems we encountered that created a vacuum in the team,” Mohammed told Goal.
“It will always be difficult to qualify with most of our regular players injured. I want to assure you that we are going to bounce back in impressive style.”
