  • Football like life is all about proper management. Osimhen is a good example of a player who has managed his career well, while Onyekuru is the opposite.
    4 years ago, Onyekuru was the toast of Europe after scoring more goals than Osimhen and the plan was for him to move on to Red Bull Leipzig for further development.
    However, he was not having it, first he tried to force a move to Celtic, then did a medical with PSG before signing for Everton despite not being qualified for a work permit. He was chasing after money instead of career development.
    Today instead of being at the top of his game, he’s struggling to convince the new coach at Monaco.
    A lesson for all aspiring footballers that money is not everything. Osimhen bidded his time and the money has come

  • Onyekuru’s issue has nothing to do with lack of ability. He is got that massively but for stability. That instability is affecting him,with regards to putting in the hard work, as his mind is just everywhere, wondering what could be his next destination, like a bird whose nest has been stolen. If he finds a home where he truly settles down, I bet, we all are gonna see a Samuel Eto like Henry firing all cylinders.

      Maybe form is not a guarantee in Monaco too, the coach too probably already knows his 1st XI….!
      When a player keeps blaming coach A, coach B, coach C and coach D, then we need to ask him ‘Why always you…’?
      In life, your attitude determines your altitude. A player without the right attitude can never find stability.
