Super Eagles midfielder, Kelechi Nwakali says he will return to action in three weeks, PNO Sports reports.

Nwakali sustained an injury in his Spanish Segunda Division club, SD Ponferradina’s 1-0 defeat to Malaga last weekend.

The 24-year-old was replaced by Ghana midfielder Sabit Abdulahi on 57 minutes.

SD Ponferradina later announced that the player will miss action for few weeks.

“Road to be back, see you in 3 weeks,” Nwakali announced on Twitter accompanied by a photo showing that he has already begun his rehabilitation.

The former Golden Eaglets captain is now expected to miss the games against Burgos, Lugo and Levante.

He is expected to return for the home clash against Villarreal 11 on January 8, 2023.
