Nigerian striker, Kelechi Nwakali has debunked reports he is considering dumping Nigeria for another country.
Mr. Allwell Nwakali, elder brother to Kelechi Nwakali, had recently stated that his brother has been approach by other countries asking him to switch nationality.
Allwell Nwakali disclosed this while interacting with newsmen in Owerri on Monday May 10.
Some agents of foreign countries have approached Kelechi for a switch of allegiance so he would play for their national teams.
Well, I cannot confirm if he has given it a consideration because I know his wish to play for the Super Eagles. He is still studying the proposals and has yet to take a decision.
For a player who wrote the name of Nigeria in global football by winning the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2015 as captain of the team, Nigeria is in his heart.
However, Kelechi Nwakali took to social media page last night to deny the news.
Dear fellow Nigerians, contrary to reports circulating in the media, I remain committed to serving my country. It is always an honour to wear the green and white of Nigeria and it is my dream to continue to do so,”he wrote on Instagram.
I categorically deny these reports and will continue to work hard until I am called upon. I am hugely proud to have represented Nigeria at various levels and am grateful to have had these opportunities in my career thus far.
I have never considered playing for another nation and continuing to play for Nigeria at international level remains my priority.
