Nwakali Vows To Give Best For New Spanish Club

Nwakali Vows To Give Best For New Spanish Club

Kelechi Nwakali has promised to do his best at his new Spanish Segunda Division club, SD Ponferradina, reports Completesports.com.

Nwakali is looking to get his career back on track after he was sacked by sacked SD Huesca in March.

The Nigeria international ran into trouble at the club after returning late from the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

The 23-year-old turned down offers from a number of clubs to join Ponferradina.

“I will try to do my best so that the season is the best it can be,” he vowed.

“We will step up on our pre-season preparations so that we will be ready when the new season begins on August 15.”

    Nwakali is always playing in Segunda whatever that means. Aren’t there 1st division clubs? Anyways, good luck!

    I’m tired of this guy. No more support from me,do as you like. Playing in Belgium would have been better, instead he chose to remain in Spain seconda league. Na you sabi

    I hope this young man is not suffering from representing Nigeria in the said afcon? I also hope NFF is offering him enough support in case we are to blame for his sacking by his former club? Best of luck, young man!

      You are so right.. Nwakali was punished for representing Nigeria at the Afcon. He will play well in this new club so that he can contribute to the success of the Super Eagles under Peseiro.

        Always making excuses for poor performances.
        So it was the NFF or AFCON that prevented him from performing at Arsenal, MVV Maastrich, VVV Venlo, Porto B, Huesca and Alcoron before his joining Ponferradina?
        Can’t you all see that the young man is grossly overrated? I mean, look at someone like Kingsley Michael of Bologna. Wasn’t he a substitute for this same Nwakali at the U17WC? Where is he now and where is Nwakali.
        Yet people here are still talking of Nwakali and the Super Eagles.
        I beg, make persin see road.

          What excuses was being made. You keep talking has though you watch his match week in week out to now he is doing poorly. Please don’t come here and be saying what you do’t know. So Because kingsley is laying for bologna makes him a better player. Bunch of nonsense. lease if you seeking people to like your comment, it is thrash. Saying he couldn’t make it at arsenal. Was it that easy, why didn’t the other Nigerians there be starting for arsenal today

          • @felix with your comment, you have not proven to us if nwakali is performing well either.

            See wether you are member of his family or friends I don’t know. What you ppl should in critisicing them is the fact that many fans love this guy, want him to be better and always get disappointed whenever he is not going in the direction we want.

          • Hi @Yinkus what wrong direction did he go to? Wrong direction is because he hasn’t gone to a big club? That’s why @Felix is asking if people have taken time to watch him.

            The dude has been playing well in Europe and we are blaming him. That was how people were blaming Umar Sadiq because Gerard wasn’t using him at Rangers. He left there and went to a Spanish second division club and there was more mockery on him. Today there is a bidding war for him.

            It is Europe, it is nor always the player’s fault. We don’t have a player like Nwakali in the Super Eagles yet,we need him! Great he has found a club that loves him,let’s support him pls

          • benakay 1 year ago

            This no be fight. What I stated is yet to be disproven by your response.
            Both Iheanacho and Nwakali were rated best U17 golden ball winners. Both were signed by EPL clubsides. One has been in the EPL ever since, while the other has been a journeyman year in year out. Is that not a fact?
            Even if we took out the point made about Arsenal (according to you, it is ‘hard’ to secure a starting spot there), does that then justify his poor performances at ALL the other clubs he has been at? And yes, I did watch his performances at Huesca and he was mainly a substitute. This means he wasn’t deemed good enough to start by the coach. This trend was similar with most of the other clubs he played for.

            Look, I hope the boy does well in his footballing career. The truth of the matter is that he is just not SuperEagles material. Nigeria has way too many good young players that we need to be focusing on and Kelechi Nwakali is certainly not one of them (he is almost 25 and hasn’t had any traction in his career). The likes of Osimhen, Chukwueze, Kingsley and Orji Okonkwo have made headway in their careers. Others in sets behind his, like Akinkunmi Amoo, Samson Tijani and Olakunle Olusegun are doing very well in their careers and are a step away from the Super Eagles. Your boy is still playing Div 2 ball at almost 25. This is not personal but a statement of fact.

    NO it was the NFF that told him to RESUME LATE at HIS CLUB SIDE

  • felix 1 year ago

    Please leave the poor Man alone, we not there to know if he is putting in his best or not. All the names you keep comparing him with how many of them play first team football. Even Ihenancho, how many games has he being relevant in the EPL. It’s not his choice to be playing in division 2. He’s not the only player in the team.
