Manchester City on loan midfielder Chidiebere Nwakali is slowly turning into the most important player for his loan side Start, with his third goal of the season coming in their 1-4 loss to Aalesund.

The Nigerian opened scoring in the 18th minute for his relegation haunted side, but was helpless in stopping them from falling 1-4 behind after the visitors Aalesund scored three second half goals.

Nwakali, elder brother to Arsenal summer signing Kelechi Nwakali has rediscovered his form that lead to Manchester City signing him and Kelechi Iheanacho in 2015, as he has so far made 20 appearances for Start.

19 year old Nwakali had a torrid time during his previous loan spells at Malaga and Girona but for Start, he has grown into one of the main men for the relegation battlers.

Reports indicate, he will be sent out on another loan spell by Manchester City when the Norwegian league comes to an end before the end of the year.

He could end up in the Netherlands where his younger brother Kelechi recently moved to on loan from English giants Arsenal.
