    Dressers, you don’t have to worry about Onuachi’s departure from Genk. Come next season, it will be a new slate for both of you to slug it out again if he (Onuachi) doesn’t move to another club.

    From what have been reading since the conclusion of the season, I haven’t seen a club who has tabled a bid for him. It won’t surprise me if he stays back or even move to a club side which might not do his Super Eagles team shirt any good.

    From the Cameroon friendly matches played, we have seen it that we have no deputy to Victor Osihmen. I will advise you Cyril to fight it come next at your club to be the number one striker at your club. We have seen the best of Paul after different opportunities given to him.
