Namo and Pillars part ways

Striker Victor Namo has parted ways with Nigeria Premier League (NPL) champions, Kano Pillars.

Namo is leaving the Pyramid City side after six years in which he won two Premier League titles in 2008 and 2012 and reached the Caf Champions League semifinals in 2009.

But the forward is yet to make a decision on his future as he is now a free agent.

"I'm no longer with Kano Pillars as I've left them. For now, I will still be around (in the country) because I've not made any decision on which team I will join.

"But I must say I enjoyed my time at Kano Pillars. They are one of the big clubs in Nigeria now, and I believe they can go ahead and win bigger things in future.

"It's time to leave Kano Pillars after winning two league titles with them. There's always a beginning and an end to virtually everything," said Namo to supersport.com.

The 24-year-old joined Kano Pillars from Yobe Desert Stars.
