Stanley Nwabali says he has no concerns abourt returning to DStv Premiership side Chippa United.

The Nigerian goalkeeper played a significant role in his country’s progression to the Africa Cup of Nations final at the expense of South Africa.

The 27-year-old saved two penalties in the shootout at the end of the tie to book his side a spot in the final.

The Super Eagles ultimately lost 2-1 to hosts Ivory Coast, and Nwabali was warned against a return to the Chilli Boys amid reported threats from some disgruntled Bafana supporters.

Nwabali was reported by KickOff to have said: “I must go back to my club, but talking about the threats, this is football.
“You can’t threaten someone because they also won some other teams too.

“It’s football, I don’t think there’s anything attached to it. Maybe it was just someone writing on social media.”

Nwabali added: “It’s cool to me because I spoke to my [Chippa United] chairman three days ago, but he didn’t say anything like all that stuff.

“So, he felt like, ‘No, it’s cool, you can come back’. I must go back to my club because they own me.”

Chippa are next in action when they host Cape Town City on Saturday.
