Former Super Eagles defender Ifeanyi Udeze has blamed Kelechi Nwakali for his lack of professional conduct at Huesca.

On Wednesday, Nwakali accused Huesca of sacking him because he went to the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.

And even though the Association of Spanish Footballers (AFE) faulted Huesca’s termination of Nwakali’s contract, Udeze is blaming the midfielder for playing into the hands of the Spanish second-tier club and should have better applied himself in his issues with the club.

The former PAOK defender told Brila:

As a player, when a club is looking for all possible means to move you on, you have to be careful, because they’ll set you up and hope you fall into their hands, so they can take drastic action against you and possibly deny you your wages in order to save themselves some money.

A player can only get away with bad behaviors if the club considered him to be among the untouchables and their prize asset, which wasn’t Nwakali’s situation with Huesca.

He went away with the National Team for the African Cup of Nations which is good, but staying back in the country when the club was expecting him to return to training is totally unacceptable.

Yes, sometimes players can take a few days off to see family and friends after an international engagement, but they’ll allow you back in the team if you are a regular and that’s after you must have paid a fine.

However, spending a week, two, or three is damn too much. Such behavior is not expected from a player, who is a few months to the end of his contract. He should have been careful.

The same thing happened when he was with FC Porto, he came for a game and couldn’t return, because his visa had expired at the time. He ended up spending weeks in Nigeria and that angered the club as well.”

I’m happy the Footballers Union are now helping him out, at least to get his money, but going forward, he has to learn and behave better.
