Anderlecht coach Vanhaezebrouck worried by Onyekuru form


Super Eagles striker Henry Onyekuru has failed to impress his coach at Belgian league giants Anderlecht, with his manager
Hein Vanhaezebrouck aiming a dig at the output of the forward.

Coach Vanhaezebrouck strongly believes the Nigerian offers little as a striker, basically pointing out his technical deficiency, something he has done earlier on this season.

”It does not make much sense to put Onyekuru at the center, but when he is standing there, he does not move, and he just moves to the left…, he always lets himself down,” Vanhaezebrouck  said to

Henry Onyekuru has shown he is a top player in Belguim after scoring 21goals for Eupen last season and earned a number of international team call-ups by the Nigerian national team.

But all that seems to matter little to his coach at Anderlecht Vanhaezebrouck who was irked by the striker doing the exact same errors he warned him against in last weekend’s 0-5 loss to Club Brugge.

”He does score now and then, but the last few weeks have not been as good either, his contribution went down.”  Vanhaezebrouck concluded.

Onyekuru is on loan at Anderlecht for the 2017/18 season from English premier league side Everton who snapped him up from Eupen before the commencement of the ongoing season.

He has scored 10 goals from 27 matches for Anderlect so far in all competitions.
