African Award: This Just The Beginning, Says Chukwueze


Nigeria’s Super Eagle and Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze has said winning the African best player in the Spanish La Liga is just the beginning of good things to come for him.

The Nigerian international was adjudged as the African best player in Spain for the 2022/2023 league season.

Chukwueze made the statement while reacting to the award and he further thanked his teammates and the technical crew for their support.

“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… and 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,”

“I want to continue working hard. I’m still young, so I’m still learning. This is just the beginning”, he said.
