NPFL: Our aim is to make the top three, winning the league is a bonus. MFM FC Captain


After recording series of wins that has seen them move top of the group A table of the abridged 2018/2019 Nigeria Professional Football League table, MFM FC captain Austin Okpara has stated that the team has all it takes to go all out to make the Super Six and possibly win the league at the end of the season.


MFM FC has recorded a total of six wins in eight matches so far losing just twice in the process and winning their last four games including an away win against Southwestern rivals Remo Stars of Sagamu.


Team captain Austin Okpara has stated that the team’s progress so far has come to many as a shock because of the number of first-team players that left before the start of the season. “This season a lot of things happened, so many players left the team and the new players are trying to blend with us but with the short time we have, I believe as the games come, we will continue to blend as a team because the new players don’t know all of our tactics yet.”


Despite the numerous challenges faced this season and the way the team has been able to pull themselves up and get the needed results, Okpara insists that they have what it takes to make the top three the end of the season; “I believe we can, with the spirit we are using to play the game this season, I believe that the top three is sure for us this season.”


MFM FC stays top of group A with 18 points from eight games while Enyimba is second on the log with 14 points from nine games. Sunshine Stars of Akure completes the top three in the group.
