The holidays is over for players and officials of MFM FC of Lagos as the club says camping activities have started ahead of the Nigeria Professional Football League 2016/2017 season expected to kick at about December.
The club announced on its website, mountaintop fc.com on Wednesday afternoon that “players and officials of Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries Football Club of Lagos have resumed camping ahead of the 2016/17 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) season.”
The Olukoya Boys returned to camp from the three weeks break given to them by the teams management after their exploits in the 2015/16 Nigerian top league season as they retained their NPFL status.
Head coach of the Lagos-based team, Fidelis Ilechukwu, who expressed gratitude to the General Overseer of MFM Ministries for his support for the team, enabling them to retain their place in the elite class, declared that pre-season activities will go into full swing on Thursday, October 27 with a light work out by the players.
“First and foremost I like to use this opportunity to say a very big thank you to our father in the Lord Dr Olukoya for his unprecedented support so far and for bringing me back to my position as the head coach of the team. I can not thank him enough.
“The team has resumed camping and I have told the players that preparations will begin this Thursday with a light workout session and we will complete the first phase of the training session on Friday as we look forward to a better outing in the coming league season,” he said.
