Management of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club (MFM FC) has put aside over N50 million to retain the services of key players ahead of the 2021/2022 season of the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
The Olukoya Boys finished 10th position in the just ended NPFL’s season with 51 points. And the management of the club wants bulk of the players retained to fight for titles in new season.
A statement by the club’s Media Officer, Olawale Quadri said: “the management of the Lagos-based club has decided to keep majority of the players to challenge for the title next season.
“The multi-million naira will be spread on the earnings of the key players of the team; Akanni Elijah, Adeyinka Najeem, Adeniyi Bamidele, Tunde Azeez, Adikwu Moses, Dayo Alabi, Ifeanyi Onyebuchi, Izuchukwu Chimezie, Tosin Olubobola, Imeh Atobasi, Denis Obasi and others.

“With this new improved salary structure in place for the players, the management believes the team will repeat the performance six years ago and possibly do better, as the Olukoya Boys prepare for what promises to be a remarkable 2021/2022 campaign,” the statement concludes.
