Ex-Chelsea Star: Chukwueze Was Fantastic Against Mallorca

Nigerian international, Samuel Chukwueze has been hailed for his wonderful performance which led to an assist to help Villarreal secure victory over Real Mallorca.

Chukwueze shone again as he was hugely instrumental to Villarreal defeating Mallorca 1-0 in a La Liga encounter which took place at the Estadio de la Ceramica on Tuesday.

It was the great run of the Nigerian international that carved out an opening for striker, Carlos Bacca to net the only goal of the match in the 16th minute, giving Villareal maximum points.

Villarreal boss, Javi Calleja handed Chukwueze his first start in eight league matches, a reward for his brilliant performance in the last round against Celta Vigo.


Former Chelsea full-back, Albert Ferrer was impressed with Chukwueze’s skill in the build-up to the goal and suggested that he stole the limelight from the goal-scorer, Bacca.

Speaking to La Liga TV after the game, Ferrer said: “It was a fantastic piece of skill from Samuel Chukwueze, not a nice finish from Carlos Bacca but it counted, three points.”
