Villarreal Confirm Chukwueze Will Miss Europa League Final Clash Against Man Utd

Samuel Chukwueze is set to miss the Europa League final clash against Manchester United after Villarreal confirmed the extent of the injury the Super Eagles star picked up against Arsenal.

According to Villarreal, the winger suffered muscle damage to the quadriceps in his left leg, and recovery time depends on the player.

“Medical tests carried out on Samu Chukwueze have confirmed muscular damage to the quadriceps in his left leg, which he picked up during the second leg of the UEFA Europa League semi-final against Arsenal FC,” a Villarreal statement read.

AS claim the Nigerian international is likely to miss one month of action, ruling him out of the showpiece against Man Utd.

Nonetheless, Villarreal manager Unai Emery is ready to give Chukwueze every chance to prove his fitness level ahead of the match.
