Nwakali Set To Dump Super Eagles For European Country – Brother Alleges

Nwakali Set To Dump Super Eagles For European Country – Brother Alleges

Super Eagles midfielder, Kelechi Nwakali has revealed his intention to dump the senior national team for another country.

Nwakali, who has not been capped in a competitive game, scored a spectacular goal for the Super Eagles against Atletico Madrid Football Club in an international friendly match in Uyo in 2018.

Recall that he was also part of the Golden Eaglets that won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2015, where he captained the team. The squad also had Samuel Chukwueze and Victor Osimhen. 

Speaking to NAN on Monday, Nwakali’s brother, Mr Allwell Nwakali stated that his brother is hot on the trail of nations from across Africa and Europe who are seeking his services, a development which is giving the former Golden Eaglets concern.

“Some agents of foreign countries have approached Kelechi for a switch of allegiance so he would play for their national teams.

“Well, I cannot confirm if he has given it consideration because I know his wish to play for the Super Eagles. He is still studying the proposals and has yet to make a decision.

“For a player who wrote the name of Nigeria in global football by winning the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2015 as captain of the team, Nigeria is in his heart,” he said.

    Kelechi is very talented but it is hard to see why he is still struggling to stam his feet today. I will advice him to change his management.

      Now that Liberia are interested in the services of Kelechi Nwakali, he could play against Nigeria in the world cup qualifiers.

  • Olusegun.B. 1 month ago

    He’s so talented and supposed to be playing along with Victor Oshimen
    Perhaps he should get rid of his management just like the way Oshimen did his when he was making his move to Napoli . From there , he can be in a formidable club .

    It is players like him that we need. He can score free kicks and can co-ordinate the midfield . Honestly
    NFF shouldn’t take this for granted.

    The football playing Nwakali brothers (Chidiebere and Kelechi) should terminate all football business associations with this their brother Alwell. He does not mean well for the at all. After leading these young men astray for the past few years preventing them from achieving their true potentials, this Alwell of a man is now about to cause a huge negative turnaround for Kelechi right at the point that the young man is just starting to find his feet. Does Alwell Nwakali really think it will do Kelechi any good to start threatening Nigeria for invitation when we all know that it’s only a question of time before Kelechi takes his rightful place in the Super Eagles so far as he remains focus to keep improving and maintain consistent good performances?
    These guys (Kelechi and Chidiebere) really need to take charge of their affairs and keep Allwell very far away from their footballing business!

    Is this one insane…? 1 player of the month award in spanish segunda division and he is already feeling indispensable….?

    Pride goeth before a fall. You will tell us if its your parents or grandparents that hail from the countries you want to dump Nigeria for. Or whether you carry their passports or have resided in them for 5 straight yrs according to FIFA statutes.

    Illiteracy indeed is a disease…!

    This kid pungently reeks of arrogance.

    Abeg @jimmyball come and carry your nephew biko…..LMAO. Nonsense.

    • I can’t stop laughing at the statement of Mr All well. Illiteracy is the worst form of ignorance. Dr. Drey, ask him those questions again pls.

    I honestly don’t think I believe this story.

    This guy has only had regular football since January 2021 in a side struggling with relegation from the Segunda Liga – he’s hardly been a regular in any of the sides he’s played for in the last 3 years. Is this an attempt to blackmail the Eagles Technical crew to invite him to camp in June, on the basis of 4 months of regular football in 3 years, none of which have been in a top side?

    If I’m not buying it, then I’m sure the Eagles Coaches won’t buy it. He’s a talented boy for sure, but he has not deserved an invite on the basis of his performances at club level. No good coach invites players to the senior squad on the basis of reputation with the U17s (Adegboye Onigbinde does not count).

    He’s welcome to turn out for Lesotho if he likes.

    If this is your plan to get noticed, I tell you boy, you just missed it completely! So you think NIGERIA will beg you?? You leave today, we have loads of Midfielders on the radar…your name won’t be remembered at all. Please get out of here man. This guy and his brother, I don’t know who gives them advices really. Little wonder why he’s at Spain Second division in a low classed team and the brother is even no where to be found today upon the talent they have. Character is truly a bedrock for rising. I think this guy lacks it.

  • Footballfanatic 1 month ago

    This guy must thing Nigerians are fools….trying to bully his brother’s way into the national team with such a retarded lie about switching nationalities. If anything he might just make it worse for his brother.

  • Edoman 1 month ago

    On what basis will Nwakali play for another Country of his wish ? Purchase of Passport? Residency? or football artistry and commitments? He doesn’t have none of these to meet FIFA switching requirements. He always wants to cut corner to achieve his goals. He was sacked by his Club in Sweden when he failed to show up after he visited Lagos for his Christmas holidays. He is not a serious professional but full
    of envy and a sense of entitlements.

    It’s time Kelechi Nwakali give federal warning to this his brother… this selfish individual is the one who advised the elder brother Chidiebere to go to Man City and Kelechi to go to Arsenal… I remember Amuneke advised them both to start from smaller European teams like Porto, Ajax and grow and become established players… but Allwell selfishly pushed them to English clubs where work permit will lock them out of playing in England… It’s now that Kelechi is finding his way again the brother has come with bully tactics… that guy na stupid elder brother… he has killed the career of Chidiebere already… now he wants to do same with the younger one!

    • Please it is fake news. Kelechi Nwakali has debunked this claim on his instagram page

      • Footballfanatic 1 month ago

        I was just about to say that too….he just distanced himself from his brother’s statement. Smart move

    Instead of hitting the nail on the head but as usual, we are hitting it from the bottom and running around the bush.

    I will never stop speaking the truth to the people of this great country.

    Apart from Nwakali’s award, he is a rare player that should be in the Super Eagles but why he hasn’t given the opportunity yet? That I don’t know.

    Is he not good enough?

    We have Nwakali but they are still chasing Eze and co around?

    Why Nigerians are like this kę?

    Instead of waiting and begging Eze why not begging Nwakali to play for Nigeria instead?

    He is a complete midfielder. He is very good at free kicks, penalties and most importantly, he is a play maker.

    He, Nwakali, Chukwueze and Osimhen were dangerous and dazzling during the under 17 in Chile 2015.

    As a world class coach, you took two players out of the three and leaving the core of the team out of the Super Eagles and instead of him to just put the ready made stuff into his role and he is begging someone that doesn’t understand the culture of the football in Nigeria to come and play for his second country?

    The gaffer is begging someone that is not interested in our football. Isn’t funny?

    I don’t blame him though. I will blame NFF.

    Amukun ęruęwó, oni oke lęnwo, ęwo isalę.

    Meaning, check the causes of the problem from the bottom not from the top so that you can understand the situation our team, the Super Eagles and Nigeria, as a nation.

    The most qualified people in Nigeria at the moment are out of jobs while the incompetent people are ruling the country?

    Samething applies to Super Eagles. Nigeria and Super Eagles are like twin brothers, whenever that happens to Nigeria must happen to Super Eagles.

    Chasing Sowore and co away from ruling Nigeria while our best players and Nigerian coaches/ex players are not getting the chance to represent their fatherland.

    The coach can help Musa to get a club and Ighalo is expected to be playing for Nigeria soon while our young stars are Chasing away from Super Eagles?

    Therefore, Nwakali definitely deserves to play for Nigeria. This is one of the reason I am clamoring for Amunike and Egbo because the two are Nigerians that understand our brand football.

    Nwakali should be patient. No long thing. Everything will be okay soon. God bless Nigeria!!!

      I read your write up and i wanted to waka pass but i couldn’t just walk away. I shake my head for you and i must add that i really pity your subordinates if you are a decision-making boss in any office or space. I’m always awed by the kind of “garbage” you spill here (pls forgive me if this sounds like an insult of some sort)
      So, if you were Super Eagles coach, you go invite Kelechi simply because he was MVP at a U-17 tourney in 2015, c’mon bro, stop kidding me. This dude just played 10 games there about for a struggling division 2 team. I am sure he hasn’t played that much games in a single season in like 2 or 3 seasons combined (i stand to be corrected though). Please come off sentiments and be realistic for once

    • This omo9ja guy is so consistent at writing rubbish. It’s his opinion though.

  • Dont make me laff!

  • This practice of using the national team to resurrect or promote footballers’career should stop for God’s sake… your career should help the national team not the national team helping your career…this is the reason I was against Musa’s recall to the national team….Musa is a legend he has helped us in the past but rules are rules… football is for the present and standard should be mentained to set a good example….Now every player want to lay claim to have helped Nigeria in the past and should be entitled to the national team…. please build your career,play in a top 5 European league,play UCL and we will come and beg you….yes let us beg them at least it is good things they beg for… please agents and promoters should stop this habit using our SE to resurrect their players’ dying careers….

    Kelechi Nwakali’s problem is the relatives who eat his money and call themselves “msnager” Poor boy is a fantastic footballer!

  • The brother Allwell Nwakali sounds like he smoked wrong smoke
    I wonder if of it is the Vatican City, Lichtenstein or Malta that he is pushing Kelechi to.
    Like has been mentioned above, Kelechi needs to sort out his association with Allwell, because All Is Not Well

    • Dr. Drey 1 month ago

      Cant be better said. There cannot be a more logical explanation to those silly comments attributed to that irresponsible “brother” who has somehow managed to mismanage 2 prodigiously and precociously talented youngsters in his custody. I read the report again and again and it just sounds like what was said after getting drunk on cheap bear in company of women of easy virtue….you know the way a drunkard brags about single-handedly fighting world war I, II and III without experiencing a scratch on his skin.

      Chidiebere is no where to be found today. Kelechi who is beginning to manage to resurrect a dying career, getting a good run of games for the 1st time in 3 years, he wants to kill his international destiny.
      All is definitely not with that Alwell of a human being. The less said of him the better.

      I no sure say na the same mama born them. Otherwise no true blood brother will single-handedly ruin the futures of his kid brothers in identically similar fashion. I’ll assume he wanted to say “..his brother is hot on the trail of CLUBS from across Africa and Europe…” rather than “…his brother is hot on the trail of NATIONS from across Africa and Europe…” or that he was misquoted by NAN. Which lie lie African and European nations chase a player with zero blood links with them fighting relegation in the segunda division….? LMAO.

  • pompei 1 month ago

    Maybe ALL IS NOT WELL wants Nwakali to play for WAKANDA.


  • Wakanda, Zamunda, I don’t care. We have too many players yearning to have a feel of the Super Eagles’ dressing room.

  • Why do u guys expect something better from a lazy greedy elder brother who beat up his father and took his place forcefully as manager of the then underaged brothers and mismanaged their careers? Hmmmm?

  • NaijaEaglesFan 1 month ago

    Which of the European countries would approach a player struggling to find his feet in a team struggling to beat the drop to the third division in Spanish football with no ties to that country?. He resided in the Netherlands for two seasons,first with VVV Venlo, then later with MVV Maarstricht which did not qualify him for citizenship of the country. Now playing in a Spanish second division team and in his second season in Spain, still not eligible for citizenship, makes one wonder where Alwell’s inspiration for that pronouncement came from.

    Do you guys remember the story of Solomon Kalou?
    He was playing for Feyenoord in the Netherlands and was considered one of the best strikers in the country at the time. He refused to represent Ivory Coast in 2006 world cup because the coaching team of the Netherlands wanted him to represent them. Knowing that he was not eligible to be granted citizenship because he was a resident for three years out of the five year that would have qualified him to apply for citizenship, they persuaded the interior ministry to grant him a waiver and expedite his process of making him a citizen which they said “NO” to because “due process has to be followed at all time in the country” they were told.

    Solomon Kalou was a top player, playing for a top team and lived in the country for three years. How long has Kelechi lived in any European country that qualified him to be granted citizenship of any of those countries? , based on his current form and the team he plays for, he’s not good enough to be invited to Super Eagles. He still has to improve and move back to his parent team, play regularly and show consistency (if they survived relegation) otherwise he should move to a team competing in the first division.

    On another note, the only other country he can represent is Biafra but unfortunately it’s not a country yet.
