Amunike Reveals how Chukwueze can better the Premier League

Former Nigerian midfielder, Emmanuel Amunike believes Super Eagles winger, Samuel Chukwueze will fit the style of the game in the Premier League.

The 1994 Africa Cup of Nations winner stated this in a chat with TribalFootball.

Chukwueze also played a pivotal role in the Yellow Submarine winning last season's Europa League trophy, in which they beat Arsenal and Manchester United in the semi-final and final.

However, Amunike insisted that he would be delighted to see the Nigerian international play in England.

“I'm happy about the progression he has gained since 2015 when he came to limelight in the National U 17 team of Nigeria where I was the chief coach then.

“It is good to know that he continues to grow as a player. He has to continue to exhibit himself. He has done well in Villarreal and that is the reason you can hear a lot of clubs putting interest in his direction.”

“I think he is a great player and I'm really glad that he was able to use the opportunity at Villareal to develop himself from the youth team and today, he is one of the players that Nigeria look upon, one of the players that some big clubs are looking to sign.

“I'm really happy for his progression and I think he can do well in any big club in England. He has the qualities to play in England.”
