Villarreal midfielder, Samuel Chukwueze, is excited to have made his debut for the Spanish side in their Thursday’s Europa League home clash against Scottish outfit Glasgow Rangers at the Estadio de la Ceramica, Villarreal, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Chukwueze, 19, came in for Nicola Sansone in the 79th minute of the encounter at the Estadio de la Cerámica, Villarreal which ended in a 2-2 draw.
“Happy for my debut yesterday @ the @EuropaLeague,@VillarrealCF,” reads a tweet on the youngster Twitter handle on Friday.
Meanwhile, Villarreal manager, Javi Calleja has tasked the former Golden Eaglets star to keep working hard in order to fulfil his potential.
“We are using almost all the players and I think it’s good, we need the whole squad, today Chukwueze made his debut. He is a player with a great future, but who must continue working,” Calleja stated after the game.
Chukwueze signed for the Spanish outfit in 2017 and had been starring for their reserves in the Spanish third tier.
In his first season, Chukwueze made 11 Segunda B appearances, scoring two goals in the process. And, although he was promoted to the senior side ahead of the 2018-19 campaign, he has played four times for the B side this term.
