Super Eagles forward Samuel Chukwueze has stated he is not bothered about his lack of goals this season for Villarreal as he is still a work in progress.
Chukwueze has only managed to find the back of the net four times in 28 appearances across all competitions this term.
The Villarreal winger has not scored in his previous seven games for the Yellow Submarine, with his last effort being in January against Girona in a Copa del Rey game.
The Nigeria international has also not been regular in Javier Calleja’s starting XI, having started 13 of his 24 La Liga games this campaign.
Chukwueze revealed he is making an effort in training in order to make more impact for Villarreal, although he admitted he is not under pressure.
“Goals come with luck. I have had a couple of chances this season and I make attempts to convert them but you know you just have to keep trying,” he told AOI.
“I’m actually not bothered because it is still a learning process for me and I know very soon what I have been practising will start manifesting.”
The 20-year-old will hope to play a prominent role and help the Yellow Submarine return to winning ways when they face Athletic Club on March 1, following last weekend’s defeat to Atletico Madrid.
