Super Eagles and Villarreal’s forward, Samuel Chukwueze, had jibes thrown at him by his teammate, Vincent Iborra, after modelling the Yellow Submarine’s kit for the new season.
The 20-year-old modelled the club’s traditional yellow kits, with the ball in his hands, but kept a straight face, looking too serious at the camera.
It was something Spanish international Iborra spotted and cracked a joke at the AFCON 2019 bronze-medalist on, in an Instagram chat.
“Why so serious?” the 31-year-old asked.
“The cameraman told me to be serious.”
The Nigeria international is highly regarded at the El Madrigal after impressing last season with five goals and two assists in 26 league appearances for the La Liga side.
