Southampton Boss Backs Onuachu To Rediscover Scoring Form

Southampton manager, Ruben Selles believes Paul Onuachu will soon start scoring on a regular basis for the Saints.

Onuachu has failed to hit the ground running at the St Mary’s Stadium following his arrival from Belgian Pro League outfit, KRC Genk in January.

The 28-year-old has made four league appearances for the Saints without a goal to his name.

The Nigeria international was a consistent goal scorer during his time in Belgium.

The forward scored 16 goals in 19 league appearances for Genk before completing the switch to Southampton.

Selles however backed Onuachu to rediscover his scoring form soon.

“Paul Onuachu who is new in the Premier League and as soon as he arrived, we throw him into the starting XI against Wolves and Chelsea,” Selles told a press conference.

“I think he will find his game, hopefully, he’ll find it sooner. We need to give him the tools.”

Onuachu is expected to be in action when Southampton take on Leicester City in a Premier League clash on Saturday (today).

    A different league housing some of the best defenders in the business,a pole difference from what Onuachu is used to in Belgium.
    However,I am of the opinion that when Onuachu start hitting the headlines in the premierhip only then his form in the super eagles will improve.
    We have suffered to see this lad hit same fantastic headlines with our team so sad.
    In my opinion there are basic skills and movements he has to improve on,this education comes with playing against tougher defenders and there’s no better place to get that schooling than the English premiership.
