Abraham Alechenwu (Albanian: Abraham Aleçenu; born March 26, 1986) is a Nigerian football player. He currently plays for KF Tirana in the Albanian Superliga.[1] His main position is left back but he can also play as a left winger when needed. He has spent all of his professional playing career in Albania and is now fluent in the the Albanian language. He has expressed his desire to one day represent Albania at international level despite the fact that he is Nigerian.




Early career

Abraham started his playing career in Nigeria Division 1 with Ambassadors of Christ as a teenager. He then moved to Albania in 2004 in search of European football. Abraham had three unsucceful trials at KS Besa Kavaje, KS Teuta Durres and KF Elbasani, which then forced him to move to KS Gramozi Erseke. After playing well for KS Gramozi Erseke the young Nigerian transferred to Apolonia Fier who were playing in Kategoria e pare at the time.

Albanian Superliga

Following a very successful first year in Albanian and European football, Abraham made his dream move to the Albanian Superliga. His first team in Albania's premiere division was KF Elbasani, he joined them in the summer of 2005. During his first season in the Albanian Superliga he was part of a very successful KF Elbasani side that won the league. Abraham was part of the best defence in Albania in that season conceding only 22 goals all season.[2] He was also part of the Dinamo Tirana team that won the Albanian Superliga 2007-2008. KF Tirana signed the Nigerian defender in the summer transfer window of 2008 for a fee believed to be in the region of around $160,000. He has also set a new record in Albania, having won 4 Albanian Superliga titles, the most ever for a foreign player in Albanian football.

AC Milan friendly

Abraham played a huge rule in KF Tirana's 2-1 victory over Italian giants, AC Milan in the first ever Taçi Oil Cup organised by Albanian oil baron Rezart Taçi. He had a very impressive game at left back, especially going forward. However, despite having a great game he lost the ball just before the end of the game which then lead to Ronaldinho's late goal.[3]

"I felt bad that they were able to score through my mistake. All the same, it was good that we beat Milan, although it was only a friendly match. The bigger joy for me was that I eventually exchanged jerseys with Clarence Seedorf and I was able to get a DVD copy of the match "[3]
