MFM FC of Lagos have reportedly sacked head coach Tony Bolus due to poor results it has recorded in the last five matches.
The Agege Stadium had been a fortress to the Olukoya Boys who went unbeaten for more than three seasons only to lose by a lone goal to champions Enyimba in a rescheduled MatchDay 6 game on Wednesday to the dismay of the fans.
A 73rd-minute tap in from a goal mouth melee by Abdulrahman Bashir condemned the club to its seventh defeat of the season.
The Church owned club are placed 12th on the NPFL log with 23points from 23 matches.
A source close to the Lagos based club told DiegwuSports that,
‘Coach Bulus has been asked to step aside by his employers on Wednesday evening after the poor results against the People’s Elephants.
‘His most senior assistant has been asked to prepare the team for the NPFL MatchDay 19 game against red-hot Kano Pillars on Sunday.’
Recall Bolus had opted to tender his resignation letter after the away loss to Kwara Utd on MatchDay 17 in Ilorin over person grounds but had a rethink.
A delighted Aba Elephants gaffer, Fatai Osho described the victory as the right tonic as lads needed as they head into a derby against Oriental rivals Abia Warriors come Sunday in Aba on MatchDay 18.
