I Would Bet My Life For Samuel Chukwueze - Napoli star

Nigeria forward and SSC Napoli star Victor Osimhen expresses confident in Super Eagles teammate and Milan’s winger Samuel Chukwueze's ability.

Osimhen has said if possible, he can bet his life for Samuel Chukwueze who is currently having a hard start to life in the Italian Serie A.

Osimhen and Chukwueze were teammates when Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets won its fifth FIFA U-17 world cup tournament in 2015; they also represent the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

Chukwueze joined AC Milan last August from Villarreal CF in the Spanish Primera Division, and has since then failed to integrate himself in to the club’s starting XI.

The Nigerian winger, has not recorded any Serie A goal or assist since joining Milan; however he has a goal in the Copa Italia.
