Mountain of Fire and Ministries Football Club have confirmed Tony Bolus as the team’s new head coach on a three year deal.
Tony Bolus replaces Ilechukwu Fidelis who joined Heartland FC earlier this month after refusing to sign a contract extension with the NPFL club.
Bolus, a former assistant to Imama Amakpakabo at Rangers International FC of Enugu and former head coach of Giwa FC was considered by the team’s management after rigorous screening exercise of top coaches to carry on with the legacy and philosophy of the modest Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side.
The Kogi-born tactician who won the last edition of the annual DK Olukoya Cup in Lagos has penned a deal that will keep him with the Lagos-based team until 2022.
Speaking to MFM FC media team shortly after the unveiling ceremony, Bolus plans to consolidate on ‘the standard’ of the team.
“MFM has standard already that we really need to start building on, you know it has been a team that has been to the continent.
“Lagos State as a whole has talent and we need to build on what the former coach has put on ground. He has done a good job and we will continue from where he stopped,” the elated Bolus revealed.
Bolus expressed his profound gratitude to the management of MFM FC for entrusting him with the role of leading the club into the new phase if its history.
“I need to appreciate the board of MFM, the management and my father in the Lord Dr. DK Olukoya for having the faith in me and for giving me this task.
“Also I need to appreciate the fans of MFM FC, they have been solidly behind the team and I just plead for their support.
“You know we are starting all over again so they just need to have patience with us. I need their support to succeed and I promise that we will give them good football and the desired results.”
