Former Flying Eagles midfielder, Chidiebere Nwakali, has revealed to Completesportsnigeria.com that Malaga’s inability to get him a work permit ruined his move to the La Liga outfit.
Nwakali, who is set to depart leave for Spain on Friday, exclusively disclosed that his parent club, Manchester City, urged him to join Segunda side Girona.
“I was frustrated with the delay, for over five months Malaga couldn’t get me a work permit to play,” Nwakali explained to Completesportsnigeria.com.
“And that was what prompted my move to terminate the contract and I’m happy with the resolution because now I can focus on football.”
Nwakali who will be unveiled officially on Monday has been handed the jersey no.12 at the club.
“I want to prove myself there because City knows I have a lot to offer,” he added.
Nwakali also says he is pleased with the steady rise of his compatriot Kelechi Iheanacho who is currently injured.
“He’s doing well and I pray he gets back to full fitness and his best form soon,” he added.
