The fine performances of Arsenal loanee Kelechi Nwakali has earned him praises from the coach of his loan side MVV Maastrict Ron Elsen, after another man of the match performance against Den Bosch.

” He is a rare talent, he has what it takes to play at the highest level. Arsenal are lucky to have him. At 18 you can clearly see how far he will go when he reaches his peak years” Elsen said after the 3-0 win over Den Bosch.

18 year old Nwakali was voted man of the match after a dominant performance in the middle for high flying promotion chasing MVV, who are top of the second division in Holland.

Although he failed to get on the score sheet in the 3-0 win over Den Bosch, but just like the game against Fortuna Sittard, he was by the best player on the pitch for both side.

He acted as a link between the defence of his team and attack, with two well taken effort which brought out saves from the opposition goalkepper denying him a chance to be on the score sheet.
