Nigerian Premier League Football (NPFL) legend, Rabiu Ali noticed the prospects in Abdullahi Lawal and the Kano Pillars great gave the young lad some words of encouragement.
Event since coming on as a substitute in the Matchday five fixture against Doma United, Abdullahi has endeared himself into the hearts of Shooting Stars fans and league watchers.
When the Oluyole Warriors hosted Kano Pillars last Sunday, he was on top of his game and this did not go unnoticed by the former Super Eagles player.
At the end of the energy sapping encounter which ended 1-0 in favour of 3SC, Ali delightfully embraced and counselled the defensive midfielder.
“You are a good player, just keep it up, you will be great”, Ali told Lawal as the legend kept hugging and tapping the young midfielder.
