Highly rated former Nigeria youth international Kingsley Michael is in line for his first team bow at Italian Serie A side Bologna after making the match day squad for their league game against Sampdoria.
It is the first time that the 18 years old has made the match day squad for the first team this season but he has been ever present for the U19s in the Youth League in Italy fondly called the Primavera.
He has made 21 appearances with a goal and assist to his name , but his overall performance has endeared him to the technical crew of the first team, and after several training sessions with the first team he is in line for his debut tonight .
Nicknamed “Kaka Trigger” he was a part of the Nigeria U17 team that lifted the World Youth Championship in 2015 and also made the U20 team that failed to qualify for the African Youth Championship in 2016.
His move to Bologna was first revealed by Owngoalnigeria.com one year ago before it became official when he turned 18 last year and penned professional terms like his childhood friend Orji Okonkwo who is also on the books of the Serie A side.
