Dear Chidiebere, some people here in CSN who have never kicked a soccer ball before are advising you the stay back in Man City and “Fight”. Young man, you are a footballer, not a boxer, a wrestler or a karateker. At 21, you need to start playing game after game as you have 2 more years left to develop. After the age of 23-24, footballers’ development stall. Move now to a top club in any of Belgium, Holland, France where you can emerge and blossom and thereafter aspire for the elite class. You are already knocking on the doors of the national team. Regular football will open that door wide for you in no time. Be wise…!
Dear Mr Nwakali, only you can decide your future and not clueless clowns who spend all their time making baseless contributions in social media and internet platforms.
I ask you to pray and show a lot of self-belief. Remember, with man it may be impossible but with God, all things are possible.
If your future lies outside Man City, so be it; if you are destined to shine there, the God that parted the red sea for the Israelites will surely make a way for you to shine in Man City against all the odds.
But first and foremost, Chidiebere, do away with pieces of advice from empty barrels who only believe that stats, figures and spreadsheets are the only factors to always put into consideration.
I blame CSN for all this confusion going on here. The picture they inserted is NOT Chidebere Nwakali rather it is Kelechi Nwakali. So @Mr Ubah hope you are not missing them up. For me, they both deserve a slot in the Super Eagles anyway
