Liverpool legend, Don Hutchison, says Super Eagles winger, Samuel Chukwueze is heading right to the top.
His remark came after Chukwueze scored in Nigeria's 2-1 victory over South Africa in the quarter final of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.
Chukwueze, who won the Man of the Match award of the encounter, gave Gernot Rohr’s men a 1-0 lead before the break thanks to an assist from Alex Iwobi, before William Troost-Ekong forced the ball over the line in the final minute.
Very impressed with his performance, Hutchiso said the Villarreal youngster is destined for the top, adding that he has told a lot of scouts and coaches about the 20-year-old.
“What a player mate. English clubs won’t have the balls to go for him (Chukwueze). I’ve told loads of scouts/coaches Etc about him! Going right to the top,” Hutchinson wrote on Twitter.
Nigeria will now play Algeria in the semi final of the AFCON 2019 on Sunday.
