Super Eagles and Alcorcon midfielder, Kelechi Nwakali has criticised the fake news spread by his Elder brother Allwell Nwakali, who said the on loan Huesca midfielder is considering dumping Nigeria for another country.
Speaking to NAN on Monday, Nwakali’s brother, Mr Allwell Nwakali stated that his brother is studying the approach from other countries about switching nationality.
“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 consideration because I know his wish to play for the Super Eagles. He is still studying the proposals and has yet to make a decision.” Mr Allwell Nwakali said.
The former Golden Eaglets captain who won the FIFA U-17 World Cup in 2015 alongside Napoli forward, Victor Osimhen and Villarreal’s winger, Samuel Chukwueze took to his Instagram account to deny the comment.
“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.
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.” He concluded.
