20 year old Villarreal winger Samuel Chukwueze has revealed he has always been a fan of Chelsea.
He claimed he became a Chelsea fan after John Mikel Obi joined Chelsea.
“I was supporting Chelsea. I used to support every team that featured a Nigerian. So my love for Chelsea then was because of [John Obi] Mikel,” Chukwueze said, according to Nigerian outlet Soccer Net.
“I am not going [to Chelsea] because I am a Villarreal player and need to get my confidence more. For now, I am a Villarreal player. I am not interested in any other club, I don’t want to be distracted by anything anybody is saying.
“I want to concentrate and see how we [Villarreal] can remain up there among the best in Spain. For now, I need maximum concentration.
“Maybe in the future, a movement is possible but right now my attention is on Villarreal. I want to focus well on my club and gain more confidence. Maybe when the time is ripe, I can move.”
