In a bid to compete and ward off advances for their top players, MFM FC have set aside over N50 Million to retain key players of the team ahead of the 2021/2022 Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL).
MFM FC finished the recently concluded NPFL season in the 10th position with 51 points.
The management of the Lagos-based club has decided to keep the majority of the players to challenge for the title next season.
Recall that the Olukoya Boys booked a CAF Champions League spot when they came second behind Plateau United in 2016/2017 football season.
The extra multi-million naira budget will be spread on the earnings of some key players of the team; Akanni Elijah, Adeyinka Najeem, Adeniyi Bamidele, Tunde Azeez, Adikwu Moses, Dayo Alabi, Ifeanyi Onyebuchi, Izuchukwu Chimezie, Tosin Olubobola, Imeh Atobasi, Denis Obasi and others.
With this new improved salary structure in place for the players, the management believes the team will repeat the performance six years ago and possibly do better, as the Olukoya Boys prepare for what promises to be a remarkable 2021/2022 campaign.
