Nigeria international forward Paul Onuachu had hit back at critics over his performances this season after failing to hit same heights like he did for Genk last season in the Belgium league.
Last season Onuachu scored 33 goals in the league, 42 in all competitions. He was widely expected to leave for a top team in a tougher league but the deal didn’t happen and many expected him to match or surpass his last season tally.
So far that hasn’t been the case but in response to criticism over his form, he has called for respect by pointing out the goals he has scored this season as a sign that it hasn’t been so bad a season even though he hasn’t hit same height like last season.
“I feel good, score again and now I have 21 goals. Not bad, right? The goal is still to play European football and if we win against Ghent on Sunday, I think we will fight for a European ticket too” he concludes warily.
