Former Super Eagles captain and Head coach, Sunday Oliseh has heaped praises on Samuel Chukwueze following his splendid performance in the tie against Barcelona.

Despite falling to defeat to Xavi Hernandez' Barcelona, Chukwueze was on the scoresheet for the Yellow Submarines at the Estadio De La Cerámica last weekend.

It was his third goal against the Catalan giants since his move to Spain and the second goal of the season.

The 22-year-old winger scored just 11 minutes after his introduction, and Oliseh said, he’s excited to see him getting on the scoresheet, after recovering from the injury that sidelined him for six months.

“Excited by Naija’s own Samuel Chukwueze’s recovery from injury & this exceptional goal scored against Barcelona. Technical, pacy and unpredictable, always love to watch this bunch of Talent perform,” he said.

Chukwueze will be in action again for Villarreal in Tuesday’s Copa del Rey encounter against lower-ranked club Victoria CF.
