Awoniyi: Mouscron Will Always Have A Special Place In My Heart

Awoniyi: Mouscron Will Always Have A Special Place In My Heart

Taiwo Awoniyi says he will forever cherish the time he spent on loan at Belgian club Royal Excel Mouscron, reports Completesports.com.

Awoniyi has been unable to play for Premier League club Liverpool since joining the Reds in 2015 due to work-permit eligibility.

The 22-year-old spent time on loan at FSV Frankfurt in Germany and NEC in the Netherlands before arriving in Belgium with Royal Excel Mouscron.

The young forward scored 10 goals during his first spell with the club.

Awoniyi’s next spell at Gent wasn’t as prolific, having scored 3 times in 21 outings, and the loan was cut short in January 2019.

He then re-joined Mouscron and immediately regained his goalscoring touch, bagging himself 11 goals in 16 appearances.

Asked about why he was successful with Mouscron, Awoniyi told Tribalfootball.com: “Of course I played more games and got the chance I deserved. I had a great time in Mouscron.

“Football is about your presence being felt and making good use of the chances that comes your way and I think I had both while at Mouscron last season.

“I had two years in Belgium which were great seasons for me and there are lots of reasons why I chose to leave, but Mouscron will always be a club that I respect a lot.”

    I’d advise u stay off the media and focus on improving your form. You hardly find people like chukwueze, iheancho, simon moses or even ndidi always on the media. Focus is the key, when you get there, the media would be d ones doing the talking for you.

    @Oakfield please tell him should he does not know. How can a serious minded person dwelling on past glory and be talking about being call up to SE? Maybe he has made up his mind to only make money from the game of football and not name. Anyway, I wish you what you wish yourself. I come in peace

    Taiwo, if you are reading this, 6 loan deals in 6 years is not helping your career one bit. Cut yourself loose from Liverpool, as far as this current liverpool team is concerned, you dont have a place in it.

    Secondly I dont see you getting 75% of national team appearances in the next 2 years (looking at the glut of strikers we have in the SE now) to be eligible for a UK work permit and play in England.

    You need a club that believes in you and willing to give you game time (like Mouscron). At 22, you need that now more than ever. Hand in a transfer request or cancel your Liverpool contract by mutual consent so you can be free to join a club that will give you a “home”.

    U17 WC was 7 (yes SEVEN) years ago. Time is going…..past glory does not get you anywhere in football nowadays.
