MFM regret inability to register Olatunsbosun for CAF CL




MFM FC coach Fidelis Ilechukwu has admitted star winger Sikiru Olatubosun is a big miss for the Lagos club after he was not registered for the CAF Champions League.
MFM FC got their Champions League campaign going in Bamako without Olatubosun after they could not register him for the competition because at that time he was pursuing a move overseas.
The MFM FC coach likened Olatubosun role in his club to that of Lionel Messi at Barcelona.
“It’s painful (he was not registered), I don’t know what to say, it’s like playing without Messi, (it means) the coach will have to do more for the other players to deliver,” Ilechukwu told reporters.
The church team will this week welcome AS Real Bamako for the Champions League preliminary return leg match after both teams played out a 1-1 draw in Mali earlier this month.
Ilechukwu said he is confident his team will advance to the first round of the competition.
“It will be a tough game, but our home win over a top team like Akwa United was a good preparation for us,” he said.
“We will win because we must.
