Olatunbosun who was spotted in Akwa United FC's camp during their screening exercise joined the Lagos-based team last weekend in Ijebu-Ode.

The tricky winger made his second appearance for the Lagos-based team against Ebedei bagging the first hat trick of the ongoing pre-season tourney.

An obviously elated Olatunbosun said in a chat after his teams' victory over the NLO side "First and foremost I'm very happy because we lost to Kano Pillars on Sunday, I was not happy despite the fact that I was on the bench but all the same it's a game of football you lose some and win some.

"We came all out against FC Ebedei and at the end of the day we won the game in an emphatic fashion. Scoring three goals for me is something good and I wish to score more goals," he stated.

MFM FC will be up against fellow Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) side, Niger Tornadoes FC on Wednesday in their last Group A fixture of the tourney.
