Papa Idris wants League and Cup double

Kano Pillars defender, Papa Idris has told that fighting for and winning the Nigeria Premier League title is not enough because they want the double.

Idris says his return to the team and that of Gabriel Rueben was an added advantage as the team gained from their wealth of experience acquired from Super Eagles duty.

“Pillars have always had a good team and they were doing well without us in the team. However you cannot rule out the fact that our return to the team was an added advantage to our fortunes,” Idris said.

“We will maintain our top position and eventually win the League as well as go ahead to win the Federation Cup later this year.

“Having come this far, we cannot just lose out of everything. It has been a while we won the League last and I believe we can do it this year.”

Kano Pillars just qualified for the semi finals of the Federation Cup on Monday, defeating hard playing, Plateau United 3-2 in one of the quarter final games and will play Lobi Stars in the semi final in Calabar.
