If I leave MFM, I will go Europe – Ifeanyi

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

The Moun­tain of Fire and Mir­a­cles (MFM) mid­fielder Ifeanyi Ifeanyi has said his dream is to play in Europe any time he de­cides to part ways with the Nige­rian Pro­fes­sional Foot­ball League side.

In a chat with Daily Trust in La­gos, the former Nige­ria Fly­ing Ea­gles player dis­closed that at the end of the first stanza of the cur­rent league, four clubs called for his ser­vices which he re­jected.

“Ac­tu­ally they are teams that bided for me like Eny­imba, Kano Pil­lars, Warri Wolves and Rangers. They came for me but MFM has been my home from the on­set, even if I am go­ing to leave MFM that will be to the Euro­pean club by the grace of God,” he said.

Speak­ing on the ex­pec­ta­tions of the La­gos-based club at the end of the sea­son, Ifeanyi who has con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of the team so far, said he was op­ti­mistic about MFM fin­ish­ing among the top four clubs that will par­tic­i­pate in next year’s CAF com­pe­ti­tion.

“Top four has been our tar­get from the be­gin­ning of the sea­son, but due to the what hap­pened, we dropped but we will still come up and make that top four, noth­ing has changed,” he stated.

He also ex­pressed con­fi­dence of play­ing for the na­tional team, adding that “the club you play for does not mat­ter. Play­ing for a smaller team does not deny one the chance of get­ting a shirt in the na­tional team.

“Where you will play, some play in Asia and some play­ers are in other coun­tries and they don’t have shirt in the su­per ea­gles, the club you play for doesn’t mat­ter for you to play in the na­tional team, what mat­ters most is what peo­ple see in you.

“Play­ing for MFM does not stop me from play­ing in the na­tional team. Ac­tu­ally I played for MFM and played in the U-20 world cup, so I can still play in the su­per ea­gle from MFM,” he said.
