  • Good move, in my opinion.
    Certainly, better than languishing in the Spanish second-tier with an obscure club. Hope you settle in quickly.
    Our midfield still lacks creativity. We still need Kelechi Nwakali in the senior national team.
    Our midfield needs all the help it can get.

      @TONY do you know that KELECHI NWAKALI is BETTER than MIKEL OBI?

        @MONKEY POST… You no lie, accolades to Mikel Obi for what he achieved in his footballing career, by all means a prodigy.

        However, it MUST be said that in the Panache and finesse we like to play football and appreciate the art of it, Kelechi Nwakali holds the torch ahead of Mikel Obi to me, allday anyday.

        At 25yrs old, his journey has been largely one rough and rumble spectre, it does not come better than the Portuguese league, decent and ably weighted test.

        KC get a good starting season behind your belt… show us your strut against the likes of Benfica, Sporting Lisbon, and Porto and walk back to pick your number in the Eagles.

        It’s time for pretenders who have made our national team nothing but average to pick their trail and hightail back into the neck of the woods from whence they came…

        Real Super Eagles fans await your grandeur and Majestic artform on the pitch… Congrats on the new move. Go Kelechi… Go Chavez… We behind you.

      • Even you monkey post know that you can’t be serious with your comment.

        Do you know at 25 what Mikel has achieved?.

        Champions league, afcon trophy and etc.

          LOL.. you know na @YINKUS I was just STYLISHLY SHADING @JIMMYBALL..

      • It’s high time he keep his head straight and fight hard for what is best for him . . . He needs a fighting goal getting oriented spirit . On the pitch he is never in a hurry but he needs to develop that hurrying hungry pressing spirit to move away from obscurity .

        Hahahaha…..not only mikel o. They said he’s also better than all super eagles midfielders combined….LMAOoo.

        Even the manufacturers of alcohol always advise people to drink responsibly….LMAOoo

        Kelechi Nwakali is so good that every team he joins suffers relegation.

        Thank God for Chaves coming to his aid now….otherwise he was spanish 3rd division bound with all his panache and finesse…..LMAOoo.

        Panache and fitness that has not made him to stand out in 2nd divisions where he has played almost all his career is what will stand him out in the deep oceans of international football….Lol.

        In the words of baba obj….”I dey laugh”

        I’m seriously praying for Chaves going into this season, because every team this guy touches with his midas-like and majestic artform since he became a full senior seem to end up in relegation waters

    Kelechi, you have got the chance of your life, and you have what it takes to make it count. It is left to you to hit the ground running and make a triumphant return to the super eagles fold. Good luck!

    He use to be one of my favourites, until he became unseriouse about his carea, a player that have the quality to become the nest pogba, pirlo or yayatoure, he cant rely only on is touches and passes, he needs to train harder and become more stronger do extra body work and mental work if he wants to reach his full potential, honestly despite how much i clamoured for him, i wasnt impressed with him at the last nations cup, i expected him to steal the show, if nwakali arrives we will not miss the so called ezegunafor of crystal palace. Ejuke and lookman are also scam, i wish they pay for the time i wasted calling for their invitation to eagles.
