Ilechukwu open to a future move away from Heartland

Ilechukwu open to a future move away from Heartland

Former MFM boss Fidelis Ilechukwu says he could be on the move from Heartland after this current season or at the end next campaign.

Ilechukwu joined the Naze millionaires a few months after ending his 13 years association with Nigeria professional football league side MFM FC of Lagos.


Ilechukwu explained that he had discussions with teams from the Northern part of the country, but it was  Heartland that gave him the right working conditions.



“I have offers from some top clubs that I don’t want to mention, but looking at Heartland, I checked Heartland and they are the second-best team in Nigeria based on continental achievements and fan base as well.”, he told


“A lot of people wanted me in the north, but there are some conditions about the offers from the North that I’m not conformable with, but Heartland promised to give me free hand.”


Meanwhile, Ilechukwu says he’s still open to a switch to other parts of the country, as things have failed to go according to plans since he joined Heartland.


“Although I got calls from people that I won’t be able to cope with the current crisis rocking Heartland, but due to the discussion and promises, then I decided to join and maybe after a season or two, I will get a team in North.” He said.


Ilechukwu has guided Heartland to 13th position on the Nigerian professional football league table before the season was suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
