NPFL: MFM coach, Ilechukwu shocked at FC IfeanyiUbah defeat
Head coach of MFM FC, Fidelis Ilechukwu, has expressed his shock after his side were crushed 4-0 by FC IfeanyiUbah in their Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) Match Day 2 clash.
llechukwu admitted that the new players he included for the match failed to justify their inclusion in the game.
“This is a shocking result as we never bargained for the heavy defeat at the hands of FC IfeanyiUbah,” he told SuperSport.
“I’m really disappointed with the performance of the players I gave the nod to start in the clash.
“I made four, five changes from the squad that defeated Niger Tornadoes in Lagos on Sunday.
“The newcomers showed flashes in preseason matches but failed today (Wednesday) woefully to raise their game.
“They actually let me down when I expected them to rise to the occasion to justify their inclusion.
“Well, the outcome of this match is history, we will work hard to get it right in subsequent matches.
“I’m sure we will get it right, surely we will bounce back to winning ways against Lobi Stars.
“FC IfeanyiUbah had a great game and performed well; I think they deserved to win the encounter.”
MFM’s next game is at home to Lobi Stars on Sunday.
