Villarreal and Super Eagles whiz, Samuel Chukwueze has undergone a successful surgery after jetting to Munich, Germany for the medical procedure.
The Nigeria international suffered a groin injury during the club’s 4-0 win at Celta Vigo in a Spanish top-flight game.
The injury made him miss clashes against Tenerife, Granada, Huesca, Girona, Real Sociedad and Levante.
The club has now officially confirmed that the 21-year-old’s operation recorded a success alongside teammate Ruben Pena.
“Samuel Chukwueze, who has been out injured receiving treatment for discomfort in his groin, has undergone surgery this morning [Thursday] by Doctor Ulrike Muschaweck in Munich, hoping to definitively relieve him of the said pain,” a statement from the club website read.
“Ruben Pena suffered muscle damage to his left hamstring in yesterday’s Copa del Rey quarter-final against Levante.
“Both footballers’ recovery time will depend on how they progress.”
