LaLiga: Villarreal manager blames Super Eagles’ Chukwueze for 2-1 loss to Osasuna
Nigerian forward, Samuel Chukwueze has been blamed for the second goal in Villarreal’s 2-1 loss to Osasuna on Saturday night.
The Super Eagles winger was action for 90 minutes in the 2-1 away defeat to Osasuna at the El Sadar Stadium.
It was, however, his error that led to the hosts’ second goal that drew the attention of his manager Javier Calleja.
The Nigerian was dispossessed of the ball by an opponent which eventually led to Ezequiel Avila’s match winning goal for Osasuna.
Villarreal head coach Calleja summed up his frustration in his post match reaction.
“We had the chance to increase our lead. We knew its going to be a difficult place to come.
“At the start of the second half, they scored a great goal and it was through our mistake, the ball given away (in reference to Chukwueze giving away the ball).
“We did try to score an equaliser but we didn’t take our opportunities. We wish our Spanish players and Samuel well in the international break.
“Its the reward for our good work. I wish them good results.”
