Former coach of Mountain of fire and Miracle football club of Lagos Marcello Anyanwu has frowned at the authority of mountain of fire and Miracle church for mandating the club management of MFC football club to exit from Nigeria football scene.
Speaking to our correspondence over the church decision from his base in United Arab Emirate the head scout of Gulf united football club Dubai 2nd division in United Arab Emirate described the decision as unfortunate one.

‘MFM club was established for evangelism and youth empowerment, It’s true that the club has been struggling for the past two season, that’s not enough for the church to withdraw their support for the club,

Church Authority has enough money and human capacity to resuscitate the fortune of the club and bounce back to continental scene says.Marcello the former NFF presidential Aspirant.

The Nigeria national league Ambassador said ‘Olukoya boys ‘was wholly owned by Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, a Pentecostal Christian Organization came into existence in 2007.

In 2013, MFM participated in the Nigeria National League after they took over Toyin Gafaar’s Bolowatan FC’s slot for free.

MFM then made their debut in the Nigeria Professional Football League in 2016 but narrowly escaped relegation.

The following season, they finished in the second position and qualified for the 2018 CAF Champions League

In the 2020 and 2021 seasons, they finished 14th and 10th respectively.

However, after six years of top flight football, MFM were relegated from the NPFL in 2022 and were to begin a new life in the NNL alongside Kano Pillars, Katsina United and Heartland FC.

But ahead of the 2022/23 abridged NNL season scheduled to kickoff on March 3, MFM as a church has decided to discontinue funding the club and returned it to the owner who gave them the slot for free over a decade ago.

Meanwhile, Henserd FC of Sagbama, Bayelsa State will replace MFM ahead the 2022/2023 NNL season.
