MFM FC woo Allen



Nigeria National League (NNL) side, Mountain of Fire Ministry (MFM) FC, are in talks with Festus Allen to take charge as head coach, supersport.com can report.

Allen was contacted this week by MFM FC, who replaced Bolowotan FC in the National League after their owner, Toyin Gafaar, opted to hand over the club to the church-owned outfit for free.

Discussions between MFM FC and Allen are said to be ongoing with both parties yet to agree on remuneration.

"Mr Festus Allen is being considered for the head coach role at MFM FC since the club is now in the professional cadre of the football league and needs guidance from a schooled coach. But no terms have been agreed yet by the club and coach as they are still in talks," said an MFM FC source to supersport.com.

"The club management made up of a number of pastors could discuss the matter and take a decision in the coming days on bringing in Mr Festus Allen."

Allen is also being sought after by an unnamed Nigeria Nationwide League (NNWL) club to fill the roll of general manager.

Talks between NNWL outfit and Allen are also ongoing but the former Ranchers Bees' coach could end up settling for MFM FC which offers a bigger chance to showcase himself in the professional ranks.

Allen was until last season the head coach of Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) club, 3SC before he was relieved of his duty amid controversial circumstance.

He had previously managed at City Of David (COD) United and ABS (formerly Bukola Babes.
