Kofarmata reunites with Pillars



The Nigerian champions, Kano Pillars have signed striker, Bello Kofarmata for the 2012/2013 NPL season.

Kofarmata spent two seasons at Cup holders, Heartland and played a pivotal role in the side's back-to-back victories in the Federation Cup.

The former Heartland goal poacher said family ties weighed high in his decision to rejoin the Pyramid City side.

"I've signed for Kano Pillars and going to play for them this league season.

"I left Pillars after 2009/2010 to Heartland and now I'm back to fight for Caf Champions League title with them. Three seasons ago, we finished in the semifinals, this time round, we're going to lift the trophy.

"I joined Pillars because of family ties and passion for the team. Kano is my home town, my family is in Kano and Pillars are my team.

"I'm closer home, my family is happy, I'm comfortable and will definitely play better this season.

"I had a good time at Heartland, I made good friends in Owerri and won two major trophies, the Federation Cup back-to-back which ranks high on my scorecard.

"I won the league title with Pillars in my first calling and I'll do more for them in my second sojourn.

"I've started very well with Pillars winning the four-team invitational tournament in Niamey, Niger Republic. Expect an improved Kofarmata in Pillars' colour this term," he said to supersport.com.

Kofarmata featured for his new side in the Niger four-team tourney where they defeated Olympic FC, ASFAN and Junior Mena to emerge winners.
