Arsenal fans come in here! MVV Maastricht forward, Kelechi Nwakali believes that Nigeria has the most Arsenal fans in the world because of one of it’s club legends, Kanu Nwankwo. Do you agree with that assertion?
The Nigeria U-20 captain who recently made Goal.com’s list of the 50 best under-19 talents in the world revealed in an interview how a phone call from his mentor, Kanu inspired his move to London.
“Kanu called me after the U-17 World Cup and said Arsenal wanted me; that the boss Arsene Wenger called him about me, He’s been my mentor, a brother and a friend. He advised me to go and develop and prove who I am. He calls me every day and I get advice from him every time. From a young age I’ve dreamt of playing for Arsenal. I think God made it easy for me because that has been my dream team.”
