    Chukwueze no be pawpaw players. Him na ogbonge wingers. Carry go, efen Arjen Robben no go fit catch you for race.

  • Chukwueze Chuks Samuel Samu!!!
    What an exceptional talent he is.
    Young and talented,
    One of Eagles’ gifted player with quite exceptional left foot and delightful movement on the ball.
    Samu is arguably the SE most reliable forward who like Osimhen, a fellow world cup winner at youth level,carries SE’s goal prospects in the attack.

    With his youthfulness, skill set and his ratings as one of the best young talents in Europe, yet,by intuition,I think young Samu can afford to do far more than his game his offerimg. He appears not pushing harder enough in terms of club performance which has seen him with reduced game time for the Yellow Submarines in the current campaign. And for the club and country way, reap from his football prodigy, his talents need to be properly managed and nurtured else we may helplessly watch his career petered out in the same way many young talents did.

    Samu should not consider himself too young as there are evidence of several youngsters in Europe who have taken their games notch high with goals and brilliant performance week in week out.

    Chukwueze needs to set for himself season’s targets and make the most of every opportunity of game time that comes his way, with impactful displays as shown in games against Real Madrid and Barca in the previous season.
    The likes of Uche brothers, Isaac Success, Ighalo and Martins are some of Nigeria youngsters who have produced magical moments in the LA Liga in the past, and he can afford to do much more if he can be more intentional in his game.

    The race to the top is not as easy as remaining at the top.

    Persistence, Pushing harder and Striving for accuracy are the key habits of mind to develop!

    He has natural abilities, he should concentrate on his final balls, passing and scoring, still very poor with those ,Messi’s first match for Barcelona was not great, but he improved on those essential part of his games.
