Samuel Chukwueze has expressed his delight after he was named Best African Player in the Spanish League for the 2022/23 season.
Chukwueze played a key role in Villarreal’s securing a place in the UEFA Europa Europa.
The Nigeria international scored 13 goals and provided 11 across all competitions for the Yellow Submarine.
“I feel so happy to win this award,” Chukwueze said.
“I’ve worked very hard this season, but I want to thank my teammates for making it possible. Without them this wouldn’t have been possible for me, the coach [Quique Setién] too. When the coach believes in you, and gives you the confidence to play and enjoy yourself, it really motivates you.
“But I think I can still do more,” he added. “I want to continue working hard. I’m still young, so I’m still learning. This is just the beginning.”
Chukwueze has also challenged himself to do more for the club next season.
“I think I can still do more,” he added.
“I want to continue working hard. I’m still young, so I’m still learning. This is just the beginning.”
