Chukwueze gets new boss at Villarreal as Emery takes over as manager


Super Eagles forward, Samuel Chukwueze will henceforth work under a new manager, Unai Emery, at La Liga club, Villareal.

Former Arsenal boss Emery succeeds Javi Calleja, who left Villareal despite a fifth-placed finish that secured a Europa League spot.

Emery, who has had stints at Sevilla, Valencia as well as Paris Saint-Germain, has been out of work since being sacked by Arsenal last November after 18 months in charge.
