Exclusive – Porto Threaten To Cancel Kelechi Nwakali’s Loan Deal Due To Non-Perfomance With B Team


Arsenal have been told by FC Porto that midfielder Kelechi Nwakali who is on loan at the Portuguese side could have is deal terminated if he fails to buckle up, Owngoalnigeria.com reports.


Nwakali started his loan spell at the club with the B team who are in the second division in Portugal but after a fine start in pre season, he has so far failed to nail a permanent spot in the starting line up of the team.

The club have complained of his poor work ethics in training and in the few games he has played so far and at the age of 20, they believe he should be doing more than what he is offering at the moment.

A progression to the first team was on the card in his early days at the club as he trained with the first team prior to league and cup games but since last month he hasn’t joined them in training, no thanks to his poor form for the B team.

Last season Nwakali who won the Most Valuable Player ( MVP) award of the 2015 U17 World Youth Championship ‎had to drop a step down to Dutch second division side MVV Maastricht after failing to nail a spot at top division side VVV Venlo.

Since beginning his professional club career he has only experienced success at MVV Maastricht, something which is a surprise to many due to his undeniable talents which saw him invited to the senior national team of Nigeria last month.

His sublime goal for the B team ‎of Nigeria in a 2-3 friendly loss to Atletico Madrid led to talks about including him in Nigeria’s World Cup squad for the June soccer showpiece in Russia but since then his performance has experienced a bad slump.
