    …and A DIE HARD man united fan (a Nigerian) a colleague in my office was praying today that Chukwueze doesn’t get up from that injury until after the EUROPA League final match is done and dusted.

    My question is, How do you draw a line between love for your country’s National team and Love for the club side? as DIE HARD FAN.

  • Man utd is really in form and can win any team at the moment. But Villarreal have shown much resilience. I didn’t expect them to qualify against arsenal but they did. They stand an equal chance against man utd. I hope chukwueze gets to play in that final. He needs to play these top matches against the best teams in the world inorder to showcase his talents and increase interest in him from other clubs. Wishing chukwueze a speedy recovery.
