Nwakali has expressed his readiness for the new season in spain as Huesca roll off their campaign against Samuel Chukwueze’s Villareal at Estadio de la Ceramica on Sunday.
The former took to the social media to express his readiness for the new season, posting on his Instagram handle: “Preseason is over, here comes the season,” Nwakali wrote.
Nwakali believes it is the beginning of a new chapter for him in his football career after helping his club, Huesca to secure promotion into the La Liga Santander last term.
Apart from moving into the Spanish top-flight from the second division, Huesca also won the Segunda SmartBank title after beating Sporting Gijon 1-0 away in the final game.
Nwakali played the entire game which was his fifth appearance of the 2019/20 season as Huesca beat Gijon away from home to record a dramatic takeover of the title from Cadiz.
