“I’ve worked very hard this season, but I want to thank my teammates for making it possible. Without them this wouldn’t have been possible for me, the coach [Quique Setién] too.

“When the coach believes in you, and gives you the confidence to play and enjoy yourself, it really motivates you.”

Chukwueze has also challenged himself to do more for the club next season.

“I think I can still do more.

“I want to continue working hard. I’m still young, so I’m still learning. This is just the beginning,” he concluded.
