Nigeria’s Kelechi Nwakali says he’s happy to play competitive football again after six months of absence from the pitch.
The former Golden Eaglets midfielder ended his association with the Gunners and signed for Spanish second division side Huesca last summer, but only made his first appearance for the club against Malaga last week.
The FIFA U-17 World cup golden ball winner also came as a second-half substitute against Mirandes this weekend and helped the team secured a valuable point.
Nwakali said he’s happy to be back on the pitch, doing what he knows how to do best and he’s hoping to continue his fine run of games in the team.
“I’m excited to be playing competitive football again. I have waited so long for this moment and I’m fully committed to helping the club achieve promotion,” Nwakali said.
Meanwhile, Nwakali will be expected to play a part when Huesca take on Segunda Division leaders Cadiz on Wednesday, Huesca is currently 4th on the log with 54 points from 34 games.
