Super Eagles and Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze has showered encomiums on his mum on her birthday.
The 21-year-old attacker took to social media to celebrate her, telling her how much he loves and cherishes.
While sharing her picture on his official Instagram page, the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations bronze winner said: "Happy birthday sweet mom, I love you so much, God bless your new age."
Meanwhile, Chukwueze was a second-half substitute for his Spanish League outfit in their first La Liga match since the middle of March.
The attacker was introduced in the 58th minute as a replacement for Gerard Moreno in a game that ended 1-0 in favour of the visitors.
Manuel Trigueros scored the only goal of the meeting in the 90th minute as the away team ran off with maximum points.
The youngster is contracted to his present club until the summer of 2023 and with an improved level of performance, he could be handed an extension or move to a bigger club.
He will form a major part of coach Gernot Rohr's team as they continue their qualification for the 2021 AFCON championship as soon as national team football is given the green light to return.
Legit.ng earlier reported that Super Eagles winger Samuel Chukwueze has been officially named as the 14th fastest player in the Spanish LaLiga Santander with a hugely impressive speed of 34.58 km/hr.
The Villarreal 22-year-old who is well known for his pace did not make the top ten list of fastest players in the Spanish topflight as made available by MEDIACOACH throughout the 2019/20 LaLiga Santander season.
Chukwueze who has been turning heads all through the season with his massive burst of pace and skills has been given an honourable mention, placing the Nigeria international on number 14 even ahead of Real Madrid’s Vinicius Jr.
