“I just wish to have another challenge” — Stanley Nwabali



"I just wish to have another challenge" -- Stanley Nwabali

Super Eagles goalkeeper, Stanley Nwabali has hinted at a potential departure from Chippa United this summer. Nwabali, who gained prominence at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in January, has caught the attention of several clubs following his impressive performances.

The 27-year-old goalkeeper finished the AFCON tournament with four clean sheets in seven appearances and made two crucial penalty saves in the quarterfinal shoot-out against South Africa. This season, Stanley Nwabali has continued to excel, recording 11 clean sheets in 26 appearances for Chippa United.

Nwabali’s standout performances have attracted interest from abroad, with Saudi Pro League club Al Ettifaq, English Championship side Queens Park Rangers, and South African giants Kaizer Chiefs all linked with the goalkeeper.

After Chippa United’s final game of the season, a 2-0 defeat to Orlando Pirates, Stanley Nwabali spoke about his future, dropping a significant hint about a potential move.

“Well, everyone would love to leave because when you are in some position, you need to grow,” Nwabali said.

“Like everyone in my position, I would like to grow more. I’m talking about clubs higher than this [bigger than Chippa United] because I have been giving my all to my club this season. I just wish to have another challenge at some other place.”
