MFM coach Fidelis Ilechukwu has compared forward Sikiru Olatubosun to Argentine and Barcelona star, Lionel Messi, comparing the two’s impact for their respective club sides.
Olatubosun earned the high praise of his coach after MFM forced a point in their rescheduled NPFL match against Enugu Rangers at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium on Thursday.
Ilechukwu compared the Nigeria international to five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi, for the impact both continue to have in their teams.
“What Lionel Messi is to Barcelona is what Olatunbosun is to MFM”, Ilechukwu declared.
“So, without Olatunbosun, there is no MFM,” Ilechukwu said per SCORENigeria.
It was Rangers second consecutive scoreless draw following scoreless home draw with Rivers United.
MFM FC are 10th on the table with 24 points from 16 matches.
