Red hot goal-poacher and the leading goal scorer in the Nigerian Professional Football league Stephen Odey is set to dump Mountain of Fire and Miracles Football club at the end of this season.
Head coach of MFM FC Fidelis Illechukwu confirmed the news to AOIFootball.com in Abuja at the the just concluded three days coaching clinic organized for all NPFL coaches by the League Management Company.
“I believe this is football, anybody can come and go just like the barracks. Stephen Odey will not be with us next season because of the numerous offers we have being receiving for his service, but we had an agreement that he will stay till the end of the season,” Illechukwu said.
He posited that he has the ability to produce more young talents and expressed optimism that he will find a better replacement for the striker.
Odey who has been capped once for Nigeria will be hoping to lead the CHAN Eagles to victory against Benin Republic on August 13, it is however uncertain if he will be in Kenya next year should the Eagles qualify.
