Villarreal star Chukwueze set to overlook Europa League remaining vs Man United
It’s always horrible to see a player miss a big cup final due to injury or suspension, but the club must make the right decision that day instead of being sentimental and trying to force someone onto the field.
You may remember when Atletico Madrid tried to start Diego Costa in a Champions League final despite having a hamstring injury and barely moving, and Villarreal would end up in a similar situation with Samuel Chukwueze:

He was sent off in the first half of the second leg against Arsenal last week due to an injury. The report confirms that he has torn his thigh, so he has a big doubt about the final on May 26th.
It sounds like there is still hope that he could make it, and Unai Emery is ready to give him any chance to get fit, but it would be a surprise if he were able to get a role to play.
He was one of their key players in the competition this season and his pace on both flanks could have caused some serious problems for Man United. Hopefully he can miraculously heal and play in the final.
