Villarreal's Chukwueze Names Ex-Chelsea Winger As His Idol; Spills The Beans About Osimhen
In an interview with the Super Eagles Media team, Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze was asked to name his role model and it didn't come as a surprise when he chose Chelsea legend Arjen Robben.

The Diamond Academy product has already scored goals in all the competitions he has featured in for Villarreal, including La Liga, Copa del Rey and Europa League.

Before hanging up his boots, Robben was one of the greatest exponents of the inverted winger, a similar role played by Chukwueze for club and country.

''Arjen Robben. He is the perfect match, I always watch his video if I am going to play a game or when I am alone in the room, when I have free time I watch his game also,'' said Chukwueze.

On his best friend in the Super Eagles, he said : ''Victor Osimhen. Five or six years now we have been together, from U17 to U20, U23, Super Eagles and we keep in touch always, and he's doing perfectly good in his club.

''I think we have been so good, he's just very lively to be with.''

Chukwueze has emerged as one of the most promising youngsters in La Liga, and was nominated for the 2019 Golden Boy and Kopa Trophy while he's still in the running for the 2019 Confederation of African Football Youth Player of the Year.
