Ilechukwu says MFM young players will make the difference as season starts against Enyimba

Head coach of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club, Fidelis Ilechukwu has said that the 2018/19 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season will be a fresh start for his wards as they face Enyimba this Sunday in Aba.

Ilechukwu and his charges will be guests to seven-time NPFL champions, the Peoples Elephant in one of the opening fixtures of Group A of the new NPFL season which will take place at the Enyimba International Stadium with the hope of starting the season on a good note.

This meeting will be the sixth between the Olukoya Boys and the Aba-based side. Enyimba claimed the available three points in the last fixture last season while the remaining four ended in a draw.

The MFM FC coach is not perturbed despite the result of the previous meetings as he looks forward to kick-start this season with a large number of newly-signed players and hopes his men can make a huge statement from the opening day contest.

“It’s going to be a fresh start for us playing against Enyimba Football Club one of the best in the Nigerian league.

“MFM Football Club is a good side as well although I know it’s going to be difficult because we lost a lot of our players to other clubs.

“Last season we lost eight players but the players we have now are young and as well new players. I know it’s going to be a little bit difficult but we will do anything possible to get a good result,” Ilechukwu told MFM FC media department.
