The fine form of giant Nigerian striker Paul Onuachu is closely being monitored by coach of the Super Eagles Gernot Rohr according to one of the assistants of the Franco-German coach of the team.
Onuachu is presently one of the top scorers in the Danish Championship with 12 goals for Midtylland, who are presently in the play offs for a spot in next season Europa League. He has an astonishing record of 8 goals in his last 8 games for the Danish side.
Nicknamed Nigerian Peter Crouch due to his height which is similar to that of Stoke City forward Peter Crouch, 22 year old Onuachu also has two goals in the Danish Cup with his brace against high flying Aab helping his side to a 3-2 win away from home.
” Rohr is aware of him, we are closely monitoring his performances this season just like every other Nigerian player. Onuachu is very young and he will get his chance if he maintains his form”, an assistant to the coach told Owngoalnigeria.com.
” Olarenwaju Kayode profited from showing consistency over a long period of time. I think Onuachu will benefit from same means if he improves on his form, A move away to a team in a more competitive league will also do his chances a whole lot of good”.
