The players are unhappy with his reluctance to pass particularly in situations that would have led to goal when they were 2-0 up and hoping to put the game to bed with Ukraine struggling to cope.

Chukwueze’s refusal to pass the ball to teammates who were better placed on four different occasions was however played down by the manager after the game much to the surprise of other players of the team. gathered from a player who was part of the team to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations that same issue of not passing the ball to teammates in better position caused some arguments between the Villarreal forward and Ahmed Musa.
