Samuel Chukwueze Joins Lionel Messi For La Liga Award

Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze’s brilliant form has been rewarded after he was nominated for La Liga’s April Player of the month.

The Villarreal star is part of a seven-man nominee list that includes Lionel Messi, Claudio Bravo, Angel Correa, Fernando Francisco, Thibaut Courtois and Fernando Pacheco.

Chukwueze was one of Villarreal’s best players in April, having scored three goals in five league games.

The Nigerian international scored a brace in the 5-1 thrashing of Levante before his stunning goal in the loss to Barcelona last Sunday.

Chukwueze, 21, has seen his performance this season below par, but he has managed to hit form at the right time.

Villarreal are currently fighting a European spot in La Liga while they face Arsenal in the semifinal of the Europa League on Thursday.
