Why Nwabali Owes Me Mercedes Benz – Chippa Coach

Posted by Samuel on Fri 07th Jun, 2024 - tori.ng

Nwabali was a surprise inclusion in Nigeria’s squad for the biennial competition hosted by Cote d’Ivoire.

Sean Louw, the Chippa United goalkeeper coach, has said that Stanley Nwabali, owes him a Mercedes Benz after his bold prediction of his appearance at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.

Nwabali was a surprise inclusion in Nigeria’s squad for the biennial competition hosted by Cote d’Ivoire.

Prior to the competition, the former Enyimba and Katsina United shot stoppers made just one appearance for the Super Eagles.

The 27-year-old was in goal when the Super Eagles squad, dominated largely by local players, was trounced 5-0 in a friendly by Mexico in the United States of America in 2021.

Nwabali was, however, one of the top performers, as the Super Eagles came second in Cote d’Ivoire.

Louw revealed that he once told Nwabali he would play for the Super Eagles in a big tournament, but the goalie doubted him.

“I told Stanley that he is going to play in the AFCON and he said, ‘’I will never play at the AFCON as long as I am playing for Chippa,”
Louw told Idisktimes.

“I said ‘Challenge accepted’, and he said if he plays AFCON, he will buy me a Mercedes Benz. Until today, I am still waiting for my Mercedes Benz (laughs).”
