    I am proud of you Onuachu. You have nothing else to prove to anybody. I am Super excited and proud of you Onuachu.

    By now, I hope they know of to use you in the national. You just need 20 minutes of action in the Super Eagles team. That is it. They should know how and when to use you.

    Same thing applies to Osimhen, Dessers, Dennis and Kayode. We have them all.

    We saw Onyekuru qualities when the gaffer
    brought him in against Cape Verde.

    I am so happy that all of my players are doing well. Dessers, Onuachu, Ejaria and Osagwe.

    Am happy for other players as well. Osimhen, Nacho and so on. You guys should keep working hard. God is in control.

    Congratulations to you all. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • Onuachu’s patience with Genk will make him get a bigger club and deal……It will also make Genk get a substantial amount of money from his transfer……This is because from all indications Paul will replicate last season’s feat or even surpass it and prove to his suitors that last season was not a fluke…… From what I have seen so far this season especially in Europe I think Paul can hold his own in a top5 league in Europe.

  • Congratulations to paul onuachu. It would seem that you are ready for a different kind of challenge having outgrown the belgian league. I hope that challenge comes soon and that you surpass it as well.

  • Ex-Sweden superstar striker Henrik Larson spent no less than 7 years in Scotland where he tore defences to shreds with goals that were out of this world.

    Larson – though mega talented – found a home in Scotland and he made Scotland his home despite being good enough to have been playing for Manchester United, Barcelona or Real Madrid at the time (incidentally, he would later play for Manchester United and Barcelona).

    My point is that Onuachu should not feel pressured to leave Belgium. Belgium is a top football nation and the Belgian league is mainstream in Europe.

    If they pay him well (which Genk does) and he continues banging the goals (which he is), then my opinion will be for Onuachu to stay in Belgium as long as necessary. Or (just like in the case of Henrik Larsson) until a big club from a bigger league shows serious willingness to pay his asking price.

    Onuachu is pure class. You don’t score goals for fun in Belgium out of pure serendipity.

    The sort and number of goals Onuachu scores in Belgium are the sort of goals some strikers struggled to score in China!

    Onuachu is having the time of his life in Belgium. Asking him to move elsewhere now is ill thought-out.

    Long may the goals continue to rain!


  • @ DEO, I totally agree with you on this. While it is good/enviable to play for the big team/leagues, it also foolish and a pure waste of talent to be sitting on the bench, which may not necessarily be as a result of lack of talent but due to coaches’ preferences. Yeah preferences, which could be littered all about with loads of other factors outside football,in what can be inadvertently narrowed down to club politics. Many of these tops teams/country, play all kinds of politics to remain at the top, as doing that, ensures more money through branding. One way to do this is reducing the strength of other teams/ league by buying their top players,without guarantee of playing time; afterall THE GAME OF FOOTBALL IS NOW ABOUT THE HIGHEST BIDDER. In this scenario, the players are the scapegoat, their talent suffer, ultimately becoming a waste, overtime. So for me without saying much, better to BE A BIG FISH IN A SMALL RIVER THAN BE A SMALL FISH IN A BIG RIVER COMPARATIVELY. A forever swim for food in that big River as a small fish; only good for sharks.

    • Glory, it is now not unusual for big clubs to buy big players who are in their early to mid-30s.

      Henrik Larsson
      Thiago Silva
      Bralislav Ivanovic

      All the players above made big moves in their 30s. Onuachu is only 27. Let him blow Belgium away for another 4 years. If the big clubs feel he can produce the goods for them, they will come for his signature.

      Leaving Belgium prematurely might just be harmful to his career. Remember Olanrewaju Kayode: leaving the Austrian league prematurely served the death-nail on his Super Eagles career. Guess where he moved to, Manchester City!!

      From the Prince of Austria, Kayode became the Pauper of Spain (where he was loaned by Manchester City). He was never again invited to play for Nigeria!

      • Spot on @ DEO. I have always been on this understanding. Thumbs up man. I wanna see all our players, especially SE players become kings/leaders in their various clubsides. Osimene is Napoli, Onuachu is Genk, Ndidi is Leicester, Ekong is Watford, Aribo/general Balogun are Rangers, Wazza Dazzler Chuzzy was before injury at Villarreal etc.. The feeling of being leaders at clubsides can propel our SE to lofty height.
