It was far harder than he imagined but after days of setback Super Eagles striker Paul Onuachu has finally teamed up with Belgian Pro League side KRC Genk.
The club delightfully announced the arrival of the Nigeria forward for pre-season training after being initially stranded in home country due to travel hassles caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
The 26-year-old left Belgium for Nigeria in May.
“Paul Onuachu and Eboue Kouassi are back in Genk after a stay in their home country – Nigeria and Ivory Coast respectively,” reads a statement on the club’s website.
“Flying back from the African continent to Europe in corona times proved far from obvious.
”Onuachu trained until mid-May and then left for Nigeria. He returned to Genk via Paris on the night from Friday to Saturday. After the end of the group training, Eboue Kouassi continued to train individually for a while before flying to his native country. He has been back in our country since Thursday evening.”
Onuachu linked up with Genk from Danish club FC Midtylland last summer.
He scored 10 goals and recorded two assists for the club in the 2019/2020 season.
His debut for the Super Eagles is quite historic; scoring one if not the fastest goal ever for the Nigeria national team
