MFM FC Coach Urges His Boys To Keep Focus


MFM Boys found themselves in the top three of the NPFL standings, but the coach has urged his boys to keep their focus intact.

MFM FC coach, Fidelis Ikechukwu has warned his players against complacency following their impressive start in the season.

The Olukoya Boys recorded a 1-1 draw at Wikki Tourist on Wednesday and have lost only three of their opening 12 fixtures. And they sit third in the Nigeria Professional Football League table.

“It’s one thing to be confident, but another to be complacent,” Ikechukwu said in an interview with Goal.

“We need to keep our feet on the ground, though. There is a lot of the season left to play.

“Teams are already looking at us in a different manner and respecting us more. With every win, matches become harder.”

MFM will play topflight leaders, Plateau United on Sunday and Ilechukwu believes they are confident of securing a positive result.

“We will have to work hard to get three points from this game. The players fully believe in how we’re playing, and that enables us to get the results we’re getting.”
