NPFL: MFM Managing Bolus’ Exit With “Restructuring” Excuse

Nigeria Professional Football League side MFM FC are still running around circles about the future of Coach Tony Bolus.

The gaffer was reportedly laid off after his side lost to Enyimba in Lagos on matchday 18.

However, the club had not released a statement about Bolus’ situation as the former was nowhere on the sideline when MFM brought Kano Pillars’ 13-match unbeaten run to a halt with a 3-1 triumph on matchday 19 on Sunday.

Coach Edmund was instead on the sidelines dishing out instructions asserting earlier media reports about Bolus’ sack.

When Chairman of the club Barrister Davidson Adejewon was fielding questions from journalists after Sunday’s game, he said that Bolus’ future at the club was still under scrutiny and made clear the club had taken a silent stance on the matter for the time being while citing restructuring as the core reason for the club’s position.

“At the moment the board has decided that the decision on coach Bolus or coach Edmond is not something to be granted to the press because it still remains an internal issue and until that is sorted out before we can be able to address the press on it,” Adejewon said.

“We agree that there are some issues that need to be restructured in the club but that is ongoing and when we through we would be able to tell the press the appropriate position of the club.”

He, however, confirmed that coach Edmund will be in interim charge while Bolus’ future is sorted out.

MFM are currently sitting in eighth place on the log and will next face Kano Pillars at the Sani Abacha stadium on matchday 20.
