The former Super Eagles stars have spoke of their delight with the development of the 20-year-old winger

Nigeria legends Emmanuel Amuneke and Mutiu Adepoju have expressed their pleasure with the progress of Villarreal forward Samuel Chukwueze.

The 20-year-old winger broke into the limelight at the 2015 U17 World Cup tournament in Chile under the guidance of Amuneke.

The forward helped the Golden Eaglets to clinch the title for the fifth time and subsequently won the Bronze Boot award and the Most Valuable Player of the Tournament.

After his impressive showing in the competition, he joined the Yellow Submarine’s youth team in 2017 and was promoted to the first team a year later.

The winger, dubbed ‘Arjen Robben’ for his skilful playing style, has continued to deliver eye-catching displays and this season he has scored four goals and provided four assists before the suspension of the league due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

Amuneke, who believes in the quality of the forward, has spoken of his delight with his development while backing him to move to a bigger club in future.

“Samuel Chukwueze whom I was privileged to have coached in the U17’s, you can see how good he is and the team he finds himself. Villarreal is a team that likes to give young players opportunities to grow,” Amuneke told Goal.
