Kano Pillars boss Ibrahim Musa sets sights on Federation Cup title

The Sai Masu Gida handler has stressed the importance of winning the Federation Cup after their implosion in last year's final

Kano Pillars head coach Ibrahim Musa has emphasised the fact they have had their sights glued on the Federation Cup title ever since their painful loss to Enugu Rangers in last year's final.

Sai Masu Gida were leading 3-0 until the last 20 minutes of the encounter before they allowed the Flying Antelopes to stage a comeback, and eventually lost on penalties to Gbenga Ogunbote's men.

Musa, who was in charge of the team, admitted the defeat to Enugu Rangers remained one of his lowest points as a coach, and he was not surprised to be asked to step aside after that game.
