Nwakali Earns Praise  From SD Ponferradina Coach

SD Ponferradina manager Jose Gomes has heaped plaudits on the club’s new signing midfielder, Kelechi Nwakali.

The Spanish Segunda Division club announced Nwakali’s arrival at the club last week.

The Nigerian international was officially unveiled by the Spanish Segunda Division club on Tuesday.

“At the U-17 World Cup, he (Nwakali) was the best player and it was not an accident,” Gomes told the club’s official website

“He is very intelligent, he knows how to take up space, he has good passes, dribbles well and delivers good pull-outs.”

Nwakali was sacked by another Spanish Segunda Division club, SD Huesca in March.

The 23-year-old fell out with the club after returning late from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in February.

    Kelechi Nwakali will do well in this club. He is far better than all other Super Eagles midfielders.

      If you said he is good in his own right I would not have argued with you because being food is relative. But to say he is better than all other super Eagles midfielders is a clear picture of what I will call a joke of the year.

      What did he do at the ancon? He has failed to live up to expectations, he seems to forget he isn’t getting any younger. Talents do fade away if not properly managed.
      However, this might just be another opportunity fo a good start to the top. If he keeps his cool, remain humble and work hard, then perhaps we will see him fulfil his potential finally.

      Yes o @EBUBEDIKE, NWAKALI is even BETTER than MIKEL OBI and all PAST SUPER EAGLES MIDFIELDER put together…

    All this pull him down syndrome against Nwakali will not work. He is more creative than Iwobi and Aribo.

    What I’m going to say here is going to be controversial. So let me start with history, the history of Rome. Rome when it came to sports was famous for gladiatorial combat, just like football is today. Why gladiators? Because it was a martial activity through which Rome hoped to use condemned slaves to make their legions (army) better at fighting.
    Rome was also famous for the plant technology (viniculture) of grafting where cuttings of a fruitful plant could be grafted onto a less fruitful one, to improve yield.

    So how did Rome improve the quality of its soldiers from the gladiatorial endeavors of slaves? Through blood grafting, by grafting the blood of the best gladiatorial slaves onto soldiers of their legions, they imbued their soldiers with the spirit of the best slaves at gladiatorial combat. They created spartans – the ideal soldiers, thus the similarly named famous slave gladiator Spartacus.

    It is also from this Roman practice that the Roman Catholic religion gets its eucharist rites of bread and wine. The point of this rite is to symbolically graft unto church members the spirit of the christ, as they imbibe wine and eat bread, in this way improving the quality and goodness of the flock.

    So what has this got to do with football? Nigerian players at a young age are being used to improve the quality of European players through blood grafts. Players like Nwakali and many others are subject to a Nazi-type sports science that treats them as blood resources to be plundered. Their talents and skill are stolen, in a race and nationality-based agenda to improve the quality of the players of their host country.

    Don’t say you’ve not been warned!

  • However, this might simply be yet another chance for a successful ascent to the top. He might ultimately reach his potential if he maintains his composure, is humble, and works hard.
