Kano Pillars have one happy player in David Ebuka, the breakout star of the 2018 Higher Institution Football League (Hifl).
The 18-year Old moved to Kano Pillars at the beginning of the 2019 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season after winning the Most Valuable Player of the maiden edition of the hifl.
Ebuka, who represented the Federal University of Agriculture, Markudi at the 2018 hifl, said life at Kano Pillars is one to behold so far and he is really enjoying every bit of it.
“Playing in the Nigeria Professional Football League has always been a great goal, a big dream”. He told Sportlens360.
“I am very happy at the moment. Playing at Kano Pillars has been a really good experience. Representing a great club, playing alongside players like Rabiu Ali, Gambo Mohammed, Emmanuel Anyawu is really a great thing that doesn’t come free to everyone”. He continued.
David Ebuka scored two goals for Kano Pillars in the regular season, which sealed his place in the Kano Pillars team, as he started all 5 games at the NPFL playoffs, scoring two goals in the tournament and also helping his team secure a second place League finish and earning a CAF Champions League spot.
“When I joined Kano Pillars, I thought things were going to be hard for me, but I kept working hard in training and on my own. I played my first game against Nasarawa United on Matchday 6 and it was just 10 minutes of play. I knew I had to keep working hard, then it came easier when I got my first ever NPFL goal against Yobe Desert Stars on Matchday 8 and I’ve been enjoying myself since then”. He concluded.
Kano Pillars finished second at the just concluded NPFL playoffs in Lagos and will represent the country alongside, Champions, Enyimba FC at the 2019/2020 CAF Champions League.
