Exclusive: Chukwueze Capable Of Leading Villarreal To Champions League Glory –Akpoborie 

Former Nigerian forward, Jonathan Akpoborie believes Super Eagles winger, Samuel Chukwueze has the potential to help Villarreal unlock Liverpool’s defence and lead his team to UEFA Champions League glory.

Recall that the Nigerian international snatched a dramatic 88th-minute equalizer to send Villarreal through to the Champions League semi-finals at the expense of Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena.

Four minutes after coming on as a substitute, Chukwueze swept home a cross by Gerard Moreno to cancel out Robert Lewandowski’s 52nd-minute opener and send the La Liga side through by virtue of a 2-1 aggregate scoreline.

Reacting to Chukwueze’s impressive performance, the former Wolsburg striker told Completesports that the former Golden Eaglets star has the potential to unlock Liverpool’s defence.

“I feel so impressed with Chukwueze’s talents anytime he plays for Villarreal. There is no doubt that he was not at his best at the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations, however, his performance against Bayern Munich in the Champions League simply shows that he’s a great player.

“No doubt he will definitely be a great threat to Liverpool because he has what it takes to unlock their defence and lead Villarreal to the glory.”
