Scottish Premiership club Aberdeen have congratulated Nigeria midfielder Chidiebere Nwakali who has been included in the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) Team of the Week for last weekend’s Scottish Premiership matches.
The Team of the Week was announced on the SPFL’s verified Twitter handle on Wednesday.
Nwakali’s inclusion was due to his impressive performance for Aberdeen in their 1-0 home win against Dundee United in the league on Saturday.
Nwakali was later brought off in the 72nd minute.
Nwakali, who is on loan to Aberdeen from Premier League leaders Manchester City, is in the middle of a three-man midfield in the Team of the Week in a 4-3-3 formation.
Aberdeen wrote on Twitter: “Well done to Chidi Nwakali who was named in the SPFL Team of the Week.”
The win against Dundee took Aberdeen to the third position on 56 points in the Scottish Premiership table.
The game was Nwakali’s fifth since joining Aberdeen on loan in January.
