Kelechi Nwakali, the Super Eagles’ midfielder, has stated that he will return from injury soon.
Nwakali suffered an injury during his club’s 1-0 loss to Malaga on Saturday.
In the 57th minute, the Nigerian was replaced by Ghana midfielder Sabit Abdulahi.
The 24-year-old, according to the Spanish Segunda Division club, will spend few weeks on the sidelines.
Nwakali is, however, positive despite the setback and is looking forward to returning to the pitch once again.
“Thanks guys for all the messages yesterday (Saturday), will be back soon,” he assured on his Twitter account.
He has made 16 appearances for Ponferradina this season with just a goal to his name.
Ponferradina are just a point above the relegation zone after 17 rounds of matches.
