Kingsley ‘Kaka’ Michael has told SCORENigeria he is excited to be part of the pre-season training of Bologna and has been handed jersey No 14 by the Serie A club.
The former Nigeria U17 and U20 midfielder has been part of the first-team squad preparations for the 2018/2019 season after he impressed with the youth team last season.
“Last season I played over 20 games for the Bologna youth team and I am glad the coaches deemed my performances worthy to get me a shot during the pre-season with the first team,” said the 18-year-old Michael.
“I am very happy but it’s still work in progress because this is only pre-season, not main league, but I will keep pushing to have a chance to play league matches.”
This week, he featured for his team in an 8-0 win over Pinzolo in a pre-season friendly.
Nicknamed ‘Kaka’ after his boyhood Brazilian hero has now been handed jersey No 14.
