Nigerian player explains why he left Mallorca

03 September 2015, 17:02

Lagos - New Union Esportiva Cornella signing Kenechukwu Uchenwa has explained why he left Mallorca after spending close to six years at the Iberostar Stadium.

He saw his first team opportunities limited at the Segunda Division side and was only able to represent the reserve team of Mallorca in the third-tier before he severed his ties with the club.

''I have signed a one year deal with UE Cornellá, Segunda Division B, in Barcelona. I left Mallorca because the new director of sports said I am not in his programs for the first team,'' Kenechukwu Uchenwa told news24.

''So I had to terminate my contract with them, that's why I signed for Cornella and it's a good team whereby if I have a good season it will be easy for other clubs to sign me.''

Kenechukwu Uchenwa is a defensive midfielder by trade but has vowed to score goals for UE Cornellá in their bid to gain promotion to the Segunda Division.

''I want to have a good season and help my new club finish in a top level in the league and to score many goals,'' he added.

The 24-year - old Uchenwa will wear the number 8 kit for the remainder of this season.
