Kadiri Ikhana has made a sensational return to four-time Nigerian champions Kano Pillars as head coach and has stated he wants to make his mark with them again.

The 1980 Africa Cup of Nations winner was officially appointed as the manager of the Kano club this week and unveiled in the northern Nigerian city on Tuesday.

Ikhana told supersport.com that he feels honoured to be handed the role at the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side for the fourth time.

"It feels good to be considered for the job here again. That means the Kano people remember the good work which I did here in the past and I am back to take them to the top of football again," Ikhana said.

Ikhana first managed Kano Pillars in 1991, and then returned to the club in 1998.

In the 2007/08 season, he led them to win their first league title when they finished one point ahead of second-placed Heartland with 63 points. However, within hours of winning the first title for Pillars, Ikhana resigned and claimed that he did so due to corruption in the sport.

Ikhana has been handed a one-year deal and he replaces Mohammed Baba Ganaru, who left the club last season and has now joined Wikki Tourists. (supersport.com)
