Is Paul Onuachu's Move To Southampton An Inspired One?

Premier League club Southampton completed the signing of beanpole Nigeria centre forward Paul Onuachu from Belgian outfit, KRC Genk. This move has divided opinions because Genk are a top Belgian club whereas Southampton are relegation battlers in the English Premier League.

Onuachu penned a three-and-a-half year contract with the Saints.

Great move for Onuachu. It is always a dream of Nigerian players to play in a league that represents the pinnacle of global league football at some point in their careers (even if it is a relegation battler).

The English Premier League to many observers is the Mecca of league football and Onuachu now has the chance to pay his pilgrimage with uplifting centre forward performances.

I am really chuffed for him.

Now he has the chance to prove doubters wrong. It is a given that football played in the English Premier League is predominantly fast paced. That still didn’t stop average-speed strikers like Drogba, Giroud and Crouch making their mark.

I expect Onuachu to follow suit.
