Santi Cazorla has hailed winger Samuel Chukwueze for his impressive performance in Villarreal's 3-0 Copa del Rey victory at Girona.
Chukwueze scored the winning goal in the 72nd minute after Ramiro Funes Mori put Villarreal ahead in the 54th minute, and Santi Carzola doubled the advantage in the 70th minute.
“His performance made it almost impossible for Girona to mount any meaningful attack from defence as they had to keep an eye on him. You can see that the talent is there,” Cazorla said.
“He is applying it properly and also willing to learn new things. The hard work he is putting in, he has to maintain it and continue to develop here because he can be the best in the world, “ Cazorla said after the game against Girona.
Chukwueze has scored four goals and three assists in 21 games in all competitions.
