Mountain of Fire & Miracles Ministry (MFM) FC of Lagos coach, Fidelis Ilechukwu has promised that he will not put pressure on his new set of players to start getting solid results, as he starts a rebuilding process.
Ilechukwu admitted he was not excited with his side’s 1-1 draw against Heartland of Owerri at the Governor Wike Pre-season Cup Competition in Port Harcourt, but says it was because he had five new players.
Footballive.ng reports that Ilechukwu went on to acknowledge that The Olukoya Boys are in a rebuilding process, after losing eight star players at the end of the past season, but believes they will soon stabilise again.
Ilechukwu said he introduced five new players against Heartland and, though the match ended 1-1, ‘Kamara’ said he expected a lot more from his experimental side.
“Though it was a pre-season game, to me it was a poor result for us, but our second match was much better than the first match we played.
“I introduced five new players. Though we made many mistakes in the first game, I had to allow them to play. We are coming up gradually.
“It is all about confidence, understanding. I told them they can do it, not putting them under pressure, knowing fully well they are young players.
“We lost eight starting players. It’s not going to be easy for us I know, but we will find our feet before the commencement of the league. “
