The Imo State-owned club is hoping that Ilechukwu’s appointment will return the club to its position as one of the most feared clubs in the Nigerian league.
Ilechukwu who was unveiled Monday in Owerri is crossing over after 13 years with MFM otherwise called the Olukoya Boys.
His career at MFM was impressive as he led the club from the nationwide league to the Nigeria National league then to the Premier league and even taking them to play in the CAF Champions League.
It is understood that the new governor of Imo State Emeka Ihedioha is eager to see the club return to its past glory as one of the most successful clubs in Nigeria.
The Nazi Millionaires as they are fondly called last won the premier league in 1993.
Prior to winning the league that year, the club had clinched the league back to back four times 1987, 1988, 1989, and 1990.
