Former Super Eagles of Nigeria striker Ikechukwu Uche has hit a purple patch at Spanish second division side Gimnastic with his second brace in three days coming in their 5-1 win at Cordoba.
Uche scored both goals for Gimnastic in their 2-0 win over Granada in their last league game during the course of the week, he repeated same feat yesterday against Cordoba by scoring in the 1st and 15th minute in their win at Cordoba.
The brace means he now has five goals from 8 games, just three short of his last season total of 8 goals in 24 games in his first stint at the club following his capture on a free transfer from Mexican side Tigres UANL.
33 year old Uche moved to the Mexican side from Spanish La-Liga side Villarreal a move which came as a surprise to many back in 2015, as he was in his prime and playing for a modest La-Liga team.
The move didn’t work out and after spending the second part of his one year deal on loan to Malaga, he was released from his contract by the Mexican side, and he teamed up with Gimnastic who are in the Spanish second division which he played in 2006 during his stint with Recreativo Huelva.
