LaLiga Celebrates Samuel Chukwueze’s Wunderkid Status

LaLiga has taken to its Twitter handle to celebrate Nigerian teenage sensation Samuel Chukwueze just after his performance against Barcelona on Tuesday.

The Villareal forward opened the scoring in the 23rd minute to put the home side ahead.

On Monday, Chukwueze had been named the Nigeria Football Federation Young Player of The Year at the Aiteo/NFF Awards.

Chukwueze, who is in his first season with Villareal’s senior team, is being courted by big-name European clubs who want his signature. 

It will be a difficult task for the Yellow Submarines to keep the hold of the 19-year-old as they battle to remain in the Spanish top flight with just two points from the drop zone.
