Super Eagles rising star, Samuel Chukwueze has been nominated for the LaLiga Player of the Week Award for match day 30 following his scintillating performance against defending champions Barcelona on Wednesday night, reports.
The 19-year-old made a meal of the Barcelona defence, scoring once and assisting another in what was an entertaining clash and a 4-4 draw.
The Nigerian would, however, have to beat off competition from the trio of Daniel Parejo who bagged an assist in Valencia’s 2-1 win over Real Madrid and Pablo Sarabia who also scored one and assisted another in Sevilla’s win over Alaves, whilst Real Sociedad’s Mikel Oyarzabal completes the pairing.
Chukwueze has been a revelation this season for the Yellow Submarines since getting promoted to the first team and has gone on to score four LaLiga goals since his debut last year.
