La Liga side Villarreal have expressed delight at the return of their young forward Samuel Chukwueze.
The club on their Twitter handle described the Super Eagles forward’s return as “great.”
Chukwueze resumed pre-season training with Villarreal after playing for Nigeria at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, where he won a bronze medal.
The 20-year-old winger, who played six of the Eagles’ seven games, was given an extended break due to his AFCON 2019 exertions.
The club tweeted, “He’s here! Chukwueze started his special #YellowsPreseason training program at the Training Ground after taking part in the AFCON with Super Eagles. (It’s) Great to have you back, Samu!”
