MVV Maastricht of Holland coach, Ron Elsen says he is happy that the club were able to hook former Golden Eaglets captain, Kelechi Nwakali on loan from Arsenal of England.
Nwakali returns to the club where he played 34 official matches, in which he scored three goals, but played the first part of this season on loan to another Dutch club, VV Van Venlo.
He, however, had to be recalled from his spell at Venlo due to lack of first-team opportunities, and has penned a deal that will keep him at MVV for the rest of the 2017-2018 campaign.
This is much to the delight of Elsen, who still relishes memories of Nwakali’s excellent displays with the club in the previous season, and expects to see more of the lad’s killer passes.
The MVV coach stated: “Last season we have already seen that Kelechi is a multifunctional attacking midfielder, who has a nose for the final pass.
“He returns in an attacking and dominant way of playing, as MVV wants to use it. He can get away at ’10’, but also as a winger.
“At VVV Venlo he has also shown at Eredivisie that he can be of value for the team in which he plays. At MVV Maastricht, however, he can collect even more minutes of play.
“We know what we can and should expect from him. That has absolutely weighed in our decision to bring him back to Maastricht.”
