Checkout the Nigerian player that played every minute in all 38 League games for his club last season

Many Nigeria Professional Football League footballers performed brilliantly in the just concluded season, and some of them were able to get call-up to the Super Eagles team in the friendly matches against Mexico and Ecuador national teams in United States of America few months ago.

In Nigeria Professional Football League, not all footballers are being assured of getting regular playing time, and that means all players need to perform up to expectation in training in order to convince their coaches.

Many players are allowed to be registered in the league because almost all the teams traveled for the away games through road, and some players would definitely be dropped at home in order to be ready for their upcoming home matches, while some will play the away games.

Nigerian midfield maestro Kelechi Chimezie is one of the fewest players to play all the 38 League games for his club, and he did not miss a single minute in the 2021/2022 Nigeria Professional Football League.

Kelechi was signed for an undisclosed fee by Gombe United football club in the summer transfer window of 2021/2022 from Heartland football club, following his outstanding performance for the club in the previous season.

The midfielder played 25 league games for Heartland FC in 2020/2022 season, and he built on his brilliant display immediately after joining Gombe United football club.

Chimezie's excellent performance made him to be irreplaceable in the team, and he was able to play all games without getting injured.

Despite his excellent performance for Gombe United football club, Kelechi was not invited for the friendly matches against Mexico and Ecuador national teams by coach Jose Peseiro, and that gave him the opportunity to play all the 38 matches in the league.

The Nigerian star's fantastic performance in the just concluded season has made him to be linked with a move away from the Nigeria Professional Football League, but Gombe United football club are yet to agree any deal.
