Yobo: Onyekuru Should Leave Monaco To Play Regular Football Elsewhere

Former Super Eagles captain Joseph Yobo has advised Henry Onyekuru to leave French Ligue 1 club, Monaco for regular football elsewhere, reports Completesports.com.

Onyekuru linked up with Monaco from English Premier League outfit, Everton this summer but has struggled to earn regular berth at the club.

The 22-year-old has made just four league appearances for the principality club this season.

He has been linked with a loan move to Turkish champions Galatasaray in January, while Russian giants CSKA Moscow and Locomotiv Moscow are also interested in him.

The versatile forward scored 14 goals in 31 appearances during his one-year loan spell with Galatasaray last season.

“It was sad he (Onyekuru) couldn’t find a chance to play in Everton,” Yobo, a former Toffees defender told Aksam.com.tr.

“He is a great talent .His failure to secure a work permit didn’t allow him play for Everton. The English Premier League is one of the best leagues in the world, but it can be a big disadvantage when you don’t play.

“His performance for Galatasaray last season was exceptional and I expect him to do that with the national team.

“His time in Monaco has not been good and leaving the club is the best option for him.”

  • It is such a shame to see Onyekuru struggle the way he is at the moment on France.

    The former Belgium based winger deserves more.

    Already, his starting position in the national team has been taken up by Chukwueze, Kalu, M.Simon and Musa.

    His place on the bench is slowly being taken over by olayinka and Emmanuel Dennis.

    For one so young,one so promising, one so gifted, it is so painful to see him slip into national team oblivion.

    Just like the way he crashed to the floor behind the wall when Mahrez took and scored the heart breaking free kick that condemned us to 3rd play playoff, Onyekuru’s national team career has crashed down to earth of late.

    And you know what’s funny? Fans don’t seem to miss his absence.

    Why should we? Kalu, Chukwueze and others are doing the business; they are delivering the goods.

    A change of club should be the start of a change of national team fortunes for Onyekuru.

    Like Yobo said in the article above: “He is a great talent”.

    It will be a shame to see all that talent wasted – which is what is happening at the moment.

    Not just him my brother, look at Kayode, success, iheanacho, these guys are beginning to look like Milli Vanilli  or vanilla Ice to me at this moment.I think three things would seriously help their careers,stay off social media, improve work ethics, look for good physiologists. I’m not ready to write them off yet, but the clock is gradually ticking.
