His initial enthusiasm upon seeing the Nigerian flag quickly shifted to confusion when he spotted the AC Milan badge alongside the former Villarreal winger.
In a humorous attempt to pronounce Chukwueze’s name, Speed hilariously struggled with the unfamiliar phonetics.
Meanwhile, Samuel Chukwueze, one of the Super Eagles’ stars, made a notable move during the summer transfer window. The 24-year-old forward completed a transfer to the renowned Italian club, AC Milan, from Villarreal.
While Chukwueze has made five appearances in Serie A since joining Milan, he is yet to contribute any goals. Hence, Stefano Pioli picking Christian Pulisic ahead of him.
Despite his performance, the former Villarreal star will be looking to challenge for his place when the Milan outfit welcomes Lazio to San Siro for other Matchday 6 Serie A tie.
