LaLiga club, Villarreal has honoured their Nigerian import, Samuel Chukwueze for reaching his 200th appearance for the club.

The winger’s landmark appearance for the Yellow Submarine came in their 4-2 victory against Espanyol last month.

As a mark of honour, Villarreal’s President, Fernando Roig presented him with a commemorative shirt.

The 23-year-old has scored 37 goals and recorded 31 assists in 203 appearances across all competitions for Villarreal.
