Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze has expressed excitement after resuming pre-season training with Villarreal ahead of the new Spanish LaLiga season.

Chukwueze registered three goals and provided five assists in 37 appearances in the Spanish top-flight for Villarreal during the 2019/20 season.

The winger and Villarreal’s dream of taking part in the UEFA Champions League next season could not be realized as the Yellow Submarine finished in the fifth position.

What that means is that the exciting winger will only play in the UEFA Europa League next term for the second time, having played there in the 2018/19 season.

Chukwueze only this week journeyed back to Spain from Nigeria after a short vacation and posted on social media: “Good to be back,” the Nigerian international wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Chukwueze and his Villarreal team-mates will play seven friendly encounters ahead of the 2020/21 La Liga season which has been scheduled to kick off on September 12.
