Adepoju, LaLiga Hail Chukwueze On Becoming Youngest Villarreal Centurion

At 21 years, seven months and 11 days, the Nigeria international erased the old record set by Mateo Musacchio, who reached the centenary mark aged 21-years, 11 months and 20 days.

“Dear Chukwueze, becoming Villarreal’s youngest centurion ever is a very beautiful accomplishment from you. Well-done on this and I hope this unlocks other hidden potentials in you. Wishing you greater successes ahead,” Adepoju wrote on his Twitter handle.

“A record-making centenarian. Samuel Chukwueze has reached 100 games with Villarreal’s first team after starting the Copa del Rey game against Zamora CF,” wrote the LaLiga side in a statement.

“The Nigerian forward has reached the 100-game mark (79 in LaLiga, 13 in the Europa League and eight in the Copa del Rey), aged just 21 years, seven months and 11 days, becoming the youngest player to reach this mark in official games for the Villarreal CF first team.”

  • Im really happy for the record created by him.But I would like him to put in more effort in terms of his finishing. He hasn’t scored as many goals as one would expect someone with his skillset would have. He is yet to really reach the height of his true potential. Some people will say im being a bit harsh on him but when you see far younger players in Europe who dont even have half of his skill set scoring goals a plenty then you will understand what im saying. Even Samuel etoo said that he needs to score more goals if he wants to be a stand out in the Spanish league. His case reminds me of a certain alex iwobi when he played for Arsenal who was doing well but couldn’t really be consistent and that was frustrating for the team and those who expected more from him back then. But that has changed and he is becoming more and more consistent in his game but still needs to add goals for his club. I wish chukwueze all the best. He has it in him

    Congratulations to THE REAL WAZZA DAZZLER CHUZZY. Many more records on the way to be broken by you. Just put in more hard work on those grey areas of your game. THINKING ABOUT SCORING ATLEAST 3 GOALS FOR YOURSELF IN EVERY GAME, WILL TURN YOU INTO A BEAST IN EVERY SUCH GAME. CAN YOU SCORE 3 IN EVERY GAME? SURE YOU CAN BOY. ITS IS IN YOUR MIND WHICH CONTROLS THE WILL TO PRODUCE THE DEED. And commit all TO THE GOD OF ALL POSSIBILITIES IN PRAYER. JEHOVAH ELOHIM.
