Dessers Likely To Leave Genk This Summer

Dessers Likely To Leave Genk This Summer

Nigeria forward Cyriel Dessers may push to leave Belgian club Genk this summer, reports Completesports.com.

Dessers joined Genk from Heracles Almelo last summer after emerging joint top scorer in the Eredivisie.

The striker has however struggled to make much impact at the club playing second fiddle to international teammate Paul Onuachu.

Though Onuachu , who has scored 33 goals in 37 league appearances is expected the club this summer, the Smurfs according to reports will bring a new forward to replace him.


That could hinder him from earning regular playing time next season and the player admitted he will make a decision on his future at the end of the season.

“I will see what will happen in the summer, a lot will also depend on what will happen with the other players”, the former NAC Breda star told HLN .

    I come in peace.

    This shows that Oga Rohr is not capable of giving equal rights to Nigerian footballers.

    This is not new to Nigerians. Dessers decided to play for Nigeria and he is struggling to get 90 minutes of actions at his club presently and Oga Rohr couldn’t do anything about it while he helped Nacho, Musa and even Okoye?

    Dessers is not playing regularly at the moment but is he in great form? Yes.
    Is he in good shape? Yes.

    Is he better than most of the strikers in the team presently? Capital Yes.

    Why Oga Rohr keep ignoring Dessers? I have no idea.

    Because the coach doesn’t recognize his potentials or what?

    I am scared now because this is the way they treated Rabiu Ibrahim in the national team and I don’t pray that such a thing to happen to Dessers and other players in the Super Eagles.

    Oga Rohr should not letting Dessers regret that he have chosen Nigeria over another country.

    Even, if it is 15 minutes, Oga Rohr should considered Dessers.

    Onome Ebi and Ordega of the Super Falcons were clubless during the tournament in Turkey but Waldrum took both the most experienced players to that tournament but after the tournament, the two players are playing regularly in their new clubs now.

    That is what I call a coach. These two ladies will give their lives when they call upon for the national duty. I wish you the best Dessers. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • But it is this same you complaining about the inclusion of musa in the team.

      Dessers is good no doubt but he has to fight for a starting shirt in Genk and as long as Onuachu keeps up this form or does not leave Genk then he would just be awarded cameo appearance for his club which is not enough to earn an international call up.

      We re all clamouring for every striker painting Europe with goals to be called up but in actual fact we can’t have more than 3 or maximum 4 CF in the team. Who would you have out of the team based on the current pool of strikers we have on the recently released list?

      Everyone’s time will come but for now he should chin up and stake a starting shirt for his club.

      You are comparing Onome Ebi and Ordega with Desseers, is he one of the most experienced Super Eagles players? No he isn’t. There is no doubt Dessers is good but you can’t expect the coach to invite him and leave out players who are performing better this season, the competition is very high at the moment… Dessers should work hard to get playing time so that he can prove himself. I wish him all the best.

      This baba abi na omo don go drink hin kainkain again. Do you care to read what you write before hitting the send button at all. Play Dessers over who exactly?? (Victor, Onuachu, Iheanacho, Simy, Moffi, Sadiq).

    • You need a councilor or better still an appointment with a psychologist

    Please tell us which of the listed strikers should Dessers replace? Or should the coach invite 10 strikers for a game that only 2/3 strikers at most would play.

    After Dessers scored the winning goal against Anderlecht, guess who he ran to celebrate with – Onuachu.
    For his part, an overjoyed Onuachu was on his knees, celebrating with Dessers, who he grabbed by the waist in a bear hug. It struck me that Onuachu celebrated Dessers’ goal even more than he celebrated his own goals.
    Indeed, the big difference between this set and the 1990s squad is UNITY.
    No bad belle in the squad. Everyone getting along fine with each other.
    It is this unity that is propelling the team to greater heights.
    As for Dessers, his talent is obvious. What I saw of him against Tunisia convinced me. The problem here is not Dessers, it is the plethora of talented strikers available to Rohr at the moment. It is up to Dessers to produce performances that will justify his future selection.

    Talking about talented Nigeria strikers, another one was on display in this same game. Lukas Nmecha, German born with Nigerian roots, played as a lone striker for Anderlecht, and grabbed their only goal of the game, a left footed effort into the top corner.
    His younger brother, 20 yr old Felix, is a highly rated midfielder at Man City, gradually working his way up to the main squad. At this time that we’re looking for quality in the SE midfield, Felix is one that I feel Rohr should be watching closely.
    Let us indicate our interest in him before he blows up and becomes big.

    See a clip of Felix.
    Check out that outside of the foot pass at 1:04.


    • Hmmm, this Felix Nmecha looks cool o… Just like you said @pompei, I think Rohr can give him a look in… The earlier, the better!

      • pompei 1 year ago

        Oh yes Q, Felix plays with intelligence and composure that is way above his age. He has Kanu’s silky moves, and Mikel’s vision. He can hold on to the ball, dictate play, and his passing range is quite impressive.
        Felix is very efficient with the ball. You hardly see him waste possession, or misplace a pass. Makes good decisions most of the time.
        He also drives forward from the midfield, in a Yaya Toure-esque manner. Capable of scoring a lot of goals, very good at shooting from distance and set pieces.
        The potential problems that might emerge are –
        1) Like our other foreign born talents, Felix may struggle to deliver on a poor pitch.
        2) He needs to toughen up physically, especially for African opposition.
        In my opinion, Felix would be a great option to have for selection in the squad. But he needs to be approached first.
