Kano Pillars’ striker, Adamu Mohammed has bemoaned injuries to several key players for his side’s exit from the 2015 Caf Champions League after the club fell 5-2 on aggregate to Moroccan side, Moghreb Tetouan on Saturday.

Nigerian Premier League defending champions, Pillars lost 0-4 in the first leg played in Morocco three weeks ago but their 2-1 win on Saturday at the Sani Abacha Stadium was not enough to keep them in the competition.

“It is a sad day in the history of the club. We had wanted to proceed to as far as the group stage but we couldn’t realize our objectives because of some problems we encountered that created a vacuum in the team,” Mohammed said.
