Chukwueze undergoes quadriceps surgery


Villarreal winger, Samuel Chukwueze, has had successful surgery on the quadriceps of his left leg.

The Super Eagles star picked up the injury during their Europa League semi-final clash against Arsenal on May 6.

Chukwueze was stretchered off in pain during the game and he tried to recover in time for the Europa League final against Manchester United last Wednesday but he failed a late fitness test and the pain reocurred.

“The Nigerian footballer’s quadricep was operated on by Doctor Ramon Cugat,” a club statement read.

“The Nigerian player tried everything possible to accelerate the recovery process to attempt to be available for the final of that competition, in Gdansk. A few days before the game against Manchester United, Chukwueze once more felt problems in that area and the club’s medical services have decided that the best option for him would be surgery.

“Villarreal CF would like to wish the forward a quick and successful recovery. Get well soon, Samu!”
