The management of Kano Pillars are set to effect changes in the club following their relegation to the Nigeria National League (NNL).

The club has revealed that it was open to release players who intended to transfer before the start of the season.

Rilwan Malikawa, the club’s spokesman, issued a statement Sunday urging players who wanted to leave to contact the management for necessary measures.

He said the management had approved a two-week break for the players after rounding off the 2021/2022 season.

“The two-week break, which starts from Saturday, will allow the players to rest and prepare well for the new season.

“The management, headed by the acting Chairman, Ibrahim Galadima, wishes the players and technical crew a successful break and urges them to start thinking of the way forward for the club,” Malikawa said in the statement.

He further said that the management had accepted the relegation of the club from the Nigeria Professional Football League (NFPL) in good faith desspite the fact that it was painful.

Meanwhile, Pillars acting Chairman, Galadima, has set up a six-man technical advisory committee to examine the present composition of player, technical crew and backroom staff with a view to suggest the relevance of maintaining status quo or otherwise.

The coommittee is to identify players whose services are needed based on their desire to remain with the club, as well as determine the relevance of players who still have one more seasons at the club.

The committee is also to suggest the modalities of engaging the services of the technical crew and players where necessary, as well as recommend an ideal and realistic structure in line with national and global standards.
