Kano Pillars coach claims bad officiating reason for side’s elimination

Kano Pillars

Kano Pillars coach Lionel Soccoia has blamed his side’s elimination from this season’s CAF Confederation Cup on bad officiating.

Pillars waved goodbye to the tournament on Saturday following a 3 – 1 aggregate defeat to Senegalese side AS Jafaar.

The first leg ended 3 – 1 in favor of Jafaar last week, while the return fixture played at Ahmad Bello stadium finished in a goalless draw.

Speaking after the match, Emmanuel Lionel Soccia said the officiating over the two legs cost his side the game.

Soccoia also described their opponents, As Jafaar as a very big side in African football.
