    Is really surprising how Nigerian players always end in relegation battle clubs.
    He said bye bye to European football atleast Genk can promise him that to a relegation bound team….anyways for naija spirit sake goodluck.

  • Great move for Onuachu. It is always a dream of Nigerian players to play in a league that represents the pinnacle of global league football at some point in their careers (even if it is a relegation battler).

    The English Premier League many is the Mecca of league football and Onuachu now has the chance to pay his pilgrimage with heavenly centre forward performances.

    I am really chuffed for him.

    Now he has the chance to prove doubters wrong. In is a given that football played in the English Premier League is predominantly face paced. That still didn’t stop average-speed strikers like Drogba, Giroud and Crouch making their mark.

    I expect Onuachu to follow suit.

    I don’t think Southauthen will sign him if they we’re placed in a comfortable position on the table. Its because they wana sink so they want who wan follow them sink. For sure i m not excited about this move one bit. We can’t be celebrating a mediocrity move when other African players are making upward movement. For instance Onana moved Ajax to Inter and Mendy from Angers to Chelsea while our Okoye move from Roda to a Watford a second division side. All this is nonsense . I hate it.
