The Board of Lagos-based Mounting of Fire Ministry FC is on the verge of announcing a replacement for its former coach, Fidelis Ilechukwu, the News Agency of Nigeria reports.
Ilechukwu, who managed the Premier League team for 13 years, was recently unveiled as Heartland manager.
A source in the club told NAN that Temitope Bolus, former coach of Giwa FC of Jos is a strong favourite for the job.
The source also said Bolus, a former assistant to ImamaAmakpakabo at Enugu Rangers, is considered to have the capacity to carry on with the legacy Ilechukwu left behind.
“Bolus is a good coach and I think he is the right man to take over from Ilechukwu. The technical crew of the club knows what is best for the club and is prepared to act accordingly.
“By the time the club announce the new coach, Bolus will surely get the nod,” our source said.
Also, Olawale Quadri, the club’s media officer said, “The board is working round the clock to re-position the club. We are not leaving any stone unturned as we have a legacy of good football artistry and we will continue in that fashion,’’ he said.
