Kano Pillars' Class of 2012: What a star-studded team

Kano Pillars' class of 2012: What a star-studded team!

You've got to be a pretty talented team to break up Kano Pillars' utter domination of Nigerian football and in 2012, Pillars delighted fans with their exhilarating football to do just that.

The team under the guidance of Mohammed Baba Ganaru was very fearless and ruthless.

It saw the likes of Theophilus Afelokhai, Gambo Mohammed, Rabiu Ali, Papa Idris and Umar Zango shinning.

Unfortunately, they became a victim of their own success and the team couldn't compete on the continent.
