Kano Pillars coach Ibrahim Musa has been hit with a fine of N50, 000 for his alleged misconduct at the on-going Ahlan Cup preseason tournament.
The Pillars manager has also been slammed with a two-match ban for verbally assaulting referees during his team’s outing against Kada City on Thursday.
Despite seeing his team secure a lone goal win over Kada City, coach Musa expressed his displeasure with the standard of officiating thereby venting his anger on the match officials.
On their official Twitter handle, Pillars confirmed the punishment but made no further comment on whether the decision will be appealed.
