Union Berlin Boss Backs Awoniyi To Rediscover Scoring Form

Union Berlin Boss Backs Awoniyi To Rediscover Scoring Form

Union Berlin manager Urs Fischer expects Taiwo Awoniyi to play a key role in Tuesday’s DFB-Pokal clash against St. Pauli.

Awoniyi started Union Berlin’s 3-1 win against Mainz last weekend on the bench.

The Nigeria international came off the bench to register a goal in the game.

It was the forward’s 10th goal of the campaign.

“I wanted to take the pressure off Taiwo a bit. He was at the Africa Cup of Nations and it has gone very well this season. He’s had a bit of a dry spell with Union now. Vogi was one of our last goalscorers and I decided for him a bit on instinct,”Fischer told ligainsider.de.

“We still need Taiwo (against St Pauli). He is our top scorer and I’m glad it happened like this: Coming in and scoring against Mainz was important for his self-confidence.”

The 24-year-old has registered 15 goals in 31 appearances across all competitions for the Bundesliga club this season.
