Portuguese Club To Sanction Super Eagles Star For Using Phone On Subs’ Bench

Nigeria midfielder, Kelechi Nwakali faces serious sanctions by Portuguese SuperLiga side, Chaves after he was caught using his phone while on the substitutes’ bench.

Nwakali started Chaves’ league clash with Famalicao last weekend but was replaced at half time by Guima.

Chaves lost the keenly contested encounter 1-0 with Gustavo Sa scoring the decisive goal for the visitors in first half stoppage time.

The modest side were relegated from the Portuguese top-flight following the defeat to Famalicao.

Joao Moreno’s side occupy last position on the table with 23 points from 33 games.

Nwakali is expected to be punished by the club for his action.

It would be recalled that disciplinary issues also cost him his contract at Spanish club Ponferradina after he reportedly returned to the club late from the delayed 2021 AFCON in Cameroon.
