Nigeria Professional Football League side MFM have announced Tony Bolus as the team’s new head coach following the departure of their erstwhile manager Fidelis Ilechukwu.
Bolus, who had a brief spell under Imama Amakpakabo as an assistant at Enugu Rangers was favoured ahead of other candidates who showed interest in the job.
Bolus signed a three-year deal with the Lagos based club and he is expected to help the team challenge for titles.
The manager, however, said that he will consolidate on the standard of the team, with few additions.
“MFM has a standard already that we really need to start building on, you know it has been a team that has been to the continent,” Bolus said in his first interview as MFM coach.
“Lagos State as a whole has the talent and we need to build on what the former coach has put on the ground.
“He has done a good job and we will continue from where he stopped.”
In addition, Bolus pleaded with the fans of the club to be patient with him as he tries to from where his predecessor stopped.
“I need to appreciate the board of MFM, the management and my father in the Lord Dr. DK Olukoya for having the faith in me and for giving me this task,” he continued.
“Also I need to appreciate the fans of MFM FC, they have been solidly behind the team and I just plead for their support.
“You know we are starting all over again so they just need to have patience with us. I need their support to succeed and I promise that we will give them good football and the desired results.” He said.
