Super Falcons star ‘open to new challenges and opportunities’ after exiting Portuguese club.

Nigeria international midfielder Chinaza Uchedu will leave Sporting Braga this summer, thus bringing her association with the Portuguese club to an end after two years.

Uchedu has been a revelation at the club since joining Braga in July 2018 from Nigerian giants Rivers Angels, scoring plenty of goals and providing assists for her team-mates.

The Super Falcons star helped Braga to winning their domestic league crown for the first time two years ago, during her debut season in the Portuguese women’s division.

Speaking to Goal.com, the 22-year-old says she is opened to ‘new challenges and opportunities’ as she seeks ‘to play in a different league.’

“Two years with Braga, I must say it was an amazing experience, being my first professional club,” Uchendu told Goal.

“The support from the whole team since my arrival till my time of departure is a feeling I don’t know how to describe.

“I am really going to miss everyone. Right now, I am open to new challenges and opportunities, looking forward to having a good time wherever I will be going to continue my career.

“Moving forward, I want a change of environment and secondly to play in a different league. Apart from these, Braga is really a nice place to be and I don’t regret ever playing for the team.”

She netted 13 times in 36 appearances during her time at Braga and also won the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations with Nigeria.
