    Besiktas? How come Nigerian players only go to poor leagues? Onuachu needs to go to Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City or Juventus. He scored too many goals in Belgium. He is world class.

      The RETORICAL QUESTION here @EBUBEDIKE should be.. How come HEAVYWEIGHT like BARCELONA and the likes you have mentioned always OVERLOOK NIGERIAN PLAYERS?

      The thing tire me, my bro. Naija players don’t work with hard-bargaining agents. Pauli Longogismus is in a class of his own. That’s a guy whom Oga Peseiro should co-opt into the team with a specific task. 

      But he must cast off his lethargic agent. His goals will send the message, but aggressive PR/marketing is needed. I totally agree with your thoughtful submission.

        Nice one @KANGA it seems the ISSUE has to the with THEM not having a good AGENT or REPRESENTATIVE..

        But some FORUMITES will never come up with brilliant SUBMISSION like you..

        They will always be like: “so make ONUACHU carry him BAG match enter any CLUB”?

        Even though they didn’t REQUEST for his SERVICES?


        Very DUMB submission…

    By now you suppose to have seen a big better offer since your exploit in Belgium.

    I think and worry about this a lot as well my brother. Onuachu was the highest goal scorer is Europe two seasons ago and among the top five last season yet no big club is talking about buying him. It’s easy to note that the skin colour is the problem. Imagine how Man united, Arsenal and other big clubs are running away from paying Osihmens release clause because of same reason. Without trying to hype this guy it’s easy to see that Osihem is the most versatile and feared sticker in the world today. If he had a white skin manu will have paid more than the 150million Napoli is demanding to land him.

  • paul should head to a top5 league at best…..France Italy Germany Spain and England……A modest team in those league will give him a better stage to prove to the big clubs that he can do what he did in Belgium anywhere he wants…….If he scores 15+ goals in any of the top 5 leagues then he will be counted among the most deadly strikers in Europe.
