Kano Pillars Striker Gambo Muhammad Happy To Return With A Bang

Published

on

Kano Pillars legendary striker Gambo Muhammad has expressed delight over his first goal of the season in his team’s 2-0 win against Abia Warriors on Wednesday in an NPFL Matchday 10 game in Kano.

Gambo rose highest to nod home the opener from Musa Ahmed’s delivery in the 72nd minute, it was a goal that broke the deadlock to set the home fans into massive jubilation after a goalless first half.

Rabiu Ali doubled Pillars lead from the penalty spot to guarantee maximum points, after the man who assisted the first goal was hacked down in the box by Abia Warriors defender Fatai Abdullahi.

Speaking to npfl.ng, the striker said it is very important to be involved for his club because that is the only way he can showcase his qualities and make a good statement of himself after being shut out of the first-team owing to injuries and the impressive form of other strikers.

“First of all I want to thank our technical crew for finding me worthy to be part of the starting line-up, this is my third full appearance since the inception of the current league season. Thank God I made a mark by scoring a very vital goal and most importantly we won the game.

“Last season I had few opportunities. Now that I have the nod from the coaching crew, it is for me to revive the prolific nature in my game to enable me score more goals and I strongly believe that my goal here against Abia Warriors has opened an account for more goals.

The striker, however, did not set any goals target for himself but affirmed that scoring is an asset he is known for, and claimed that he will get more goals if he continues to get the chance to play.

It became a noisy atmosphere as the vociferous fan base at the Kano Pillars Stadium chanted ‘sai baba attacker’ (meaning the big striker) immediately after the goal by Gambo. The fans later crowded Gambo Muhammad after the match in a cheerful mood, urging him to renew his scoring ability.

Gambo was voted man of the match. He also played for the entirety for 90 minutes.

The striker is expected to be in his team’s plan for their next game against FC Ifeanyi Ubah in Nnewi on Matchday 11.
