Nigerian midfielder, Chidiebere Nwakali is excited to rejoin the rest of the Kalmar team ahead of the new Swedish season which kicks off next month, reports.


The former U-17 world cup winner was excused from the rest of the squad 10 days ago through illness but has now fully recovered and returned to the club.


“I’m back with the team already in Sweden on Friday and trained with the squad on Saturday, although I trained alone before joining the rest of the squad.


“We have a game on Sunday but I  won’t be part of it since I just returned, but hopefully I will be making my debut with the team and try to get acquainted before the new season,” Nwakali said.


Kalmar will open their league campaign with a home tie against IK Sirius as they bid to improve on their 10th place finish last season.
