Kano Pillars defender, Papa Idris has boasted that his team will emerge as champions of the Nigeria Premier League (NPL) this season.
Idris who is a member of the Super Eagles told Goal.com in Lagos that Kano Pillars will certainly beat Rangers and Lobi Stars to the title after the last round of matches.
"A lot of people have written us off even before our game against Akwa United. They never thought we could go to Uyo to beat Akwa United.
"But we did it and now they are also saying that we cannot beat Sunshine Stars in our last game in Ijebu Ode. I want to say that we are going to do it because we have a good team.
"Rangers and Lobi Stars should not dream of picking up the title because Kano Pillars is the team that is assured of winning the trophy.
"When you watch us play, you will realise that Kano Pillars will win the trophy. The players are ready. The management is motivated to give us the best and the Kano State Government is not relenting to make sure we have the best welfare package before the last game against Sunshine Stars.
"We are going to shock a lot of football followers. They will not believe the result when they hear that Kano Pillars defeated Sunshine Stars in Ijebu Ode.
"We are going to make it happen on September 7th," Idris boasted. Kano Pillars presently leads the NPL table with 64 points.
