Villarreal manager, Unai Emery has confirmed that Super Eagles star, Samuel Chukwueze will not part of the squad to face Espanyol in La Liga.
Emery gave this update during a pre-match press conference via Villarreal’s website on Saturday.
The Nigerian international has been out of action due to a recurring injury since their Europa League semi-final fixture against Arsenal.
“We’re travelling without three key players (Dani Parejo, Samu Chukwueze and Pau Torres), which is going to give opportunities to other players.”
“We need to work well, have a positive mentality and ensure that the players are prepared,” he added.
