Nigeria and Villarreal youngster Samuel Chukwueze is one of La Liga’s breakout stars this season, despite his team’s struggles for form.
Chukwueze, 19, got promoted to the Yellow Submarines first-team late last year and has taken the Spanish top-flight League by storm.
His brilliant dribbling skills and his tricky runs behind defenders makes him handful for many defenders.
Despite all these potentials, the youngster must add two things to his game, if he must be regarded as one of the world’s most lethal wingers next season.
He must avoid losing the ball too often
Chukwueze got dispossessed too easily during Villarreal’s 3-1 victory over Rayo Vallecano on Sunday which prevented him from creating more opportunities for centre-forward Ekambi.
Best players like Messi, Ronaldo and Robben hardly get dispossessed by one marker.
Therefore, the Super Eagle must learn from established stars on how to hold onto the ball in a order to become a nightmare to any defender in the world.
He must add more goals to his game
Though Chukwueze recently broke into limelight, the Nigerian ought to have scored more goals this season.
He missed a clear-cut chance against Vallecano when his shot from close range was conveniently saved by Alberto García.
PSG and France’s 20-year-old striker Kylian Mbappe is definitely one of the deadliest wingers in the world as result of his impressive goal scoring record for both club and country. Chukwueze has to improve his conversion rate to stand any chance of making the Ballon d’Or shortlist in the nearest future.
