"Truth is that Dr. Olukoya had a meeting with all of us, players and officials of the team last week Tuesday and Wednesday in his office. Expectedly, he wasn't happy that MFM FC barely survived the drop,” said Enakhena.
“He charged the boys and the management to up their game next season and avoid listening to rumors and so many other sundry issues which are meant to distract them from facing the task at hand.
“He also said that indisciplined players and officials will be wielded out while he will announce in the church for members with football knowledge to come forward in other to strengthen the management led by me to have a better outing next season.
“Our head coach, Fidelis Ilechukwu remains with us. MFM FC is one big Christian family. We had our ups and downs last season and the good part is that we survived the drop. MFM FC is just seven months old in the Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
“Lessons learnt will stand us in good stead next season. We are presently on break after a hectic season and all will fall in place when we resume by the first week of November.”
