Villarreal manager Unai Emery says Samuel Chukwueze is gradually returning to his best following a lengthy spell on the sidelines, reports Completesports.com.
Chukwueze recently returned to action for the Yellow Submarine after picking up an injury in the Europa League semi-final win against Arsenal in May.
The 22-year-old made his first appearance this season in the 2-1 home defeat against Osasuna replacing Arnaut Danjuma 12 minutes from time.

“It’s great for ‘Samu’ to return after a major injury,” Emery said.

“We are now seeing the qualities of ‘Samu’.”Copyright © 2022 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
