Former Super Eagles midfielder Kelechi Nwakali suffered an injury when his side SD Ponferradina took on Malaga in a Segunda division fixture.
Ponferradina lost 1-0 no thanks to an own goal from Erik Moran, but Nwakali was in action and started in a double pivot in midfield alongside Moran.
The Nigerian lasted only 57 minutes before he pulled out with injury and was replaced by Sabit Abdulai.
In a social media post on Monday, the player assured fans that he will be back sooner than initially feared.
