Super Eagles star Samuel Chukwueze won Villareal’s ‘Revelation Of The Season’ award at the Club awards night, for his outstanding performances in the 2018/2019 La Liga season.

The award was created by the Spanish club to honour the club’s breakout player of the season.

Chukwueze’s excellent performance for the Yellow Submarine in his first senior season with the club didn’t not go unnoticed, as he was presented with his first senior individual career award.

The 20-year-old winger scored five goals in 26 La Liga appearances last season, and helped the club retain their top division status.

The Nigeria intentional wore the number 30 in his breakout season at the club, but has been given the jersey number 11 for the upcoming season.

The jersey number 11 was famously worn by former Danish star Jon Dahl Tomasson, in the 2007/08 La Liga season when the club finished as runner up.

Chukwueze was also a key player for the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the just concluded African Cup Of Nations, in which Nigeria emerged third.
