MFM's long-serving coach Fidelis Ilechukwu has left the club after 13 years in charge.
According to local reports, Ilechukwu is set to take up a more financially lucrative opportunity at another Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side.
An anonymous club official at MFM has whispered the news to Goal, including the confirmation that MFM will soon release an official statement.
“Yes, it is true, coach Fidelis is no longer with us [MFM], but I cannot confirm which club he is going to, we would be releasing an official statement very soon to thank him for his meritorious service and also wish ‘Camara’ well in his future endeavours” the club official told Goal.
“We have always known that this day will eventually come and so we are already looking at a good replacement, while I will not want to drop any names, you can be sure that we will be going for another young hardworking coach to carry on the good work our former coach has done over the years,” concluded the source.
Meanwhile, local reports have widely suggested that the young coach is headed for Heartland FC.
