NPFL: MFM FC Coach Speaks After Auto Crash
The coach of Nigeria Professional Football League side, MFM FC, Fidelis Ilechukwu has frowned at reports suggesting he was badly injured in the auto crash suffered by the Olukoya Boys on Sunday.
Players and officials of MFM FC were on Sunday evening involved in a road accident along Akungba, Ondo State.
The road mishap occurred as the Olukoya Boys were returning from Jos after their Matchday 5 encounter against current NPFL champions, Plateau United which ended in a 1-0 triumph for the Jos-based team.
"I thank God for what he has done for us, no life was lost, the players are in good condition and I am in good condition as well.
"I am surprised that they said I am in coma, I am not. I am very okay right now," the MFM coach said in a statement on Monday while also posting some pictures on his Facebook page to back his claims.
The coach concluded by saying: "Our focus is now on our game against we Wikki Tourists, it is very important for us, you know we lost against Plateau United so now we have to shift our focus to that game because the three points is very important to MFM Football Club."
The Lagos-based team who currently occupy 16th position on the NPFL table with six points from five matches will host Wikki Tourists of Bauchi on Wednesday in Matchday 6 at the Soccer Temple, Agege Stadium.
