At the start of the season in Belgium, the one name on the lips of every football fan in Belgium has to be Nigerian forward Dennis Bonaventure of Club Brugge after his splendid start to life in Belgium.
Bonaventure arrived Club Brugge from Ukrainian side Zorya, and immediately got down to business with five goals in his first seven games for the team, including four in the League and one in the UEFA Champions League Qualifiers.
However the 19 year old progress was halted when he picked up a thigh injury that has kept him out of the team in their last three league games including the weekend game against Royal Excel Mouscron ,which they lost 2-1.
In his absence fit again on loan Gent forward Peter Olayinka has upstaged him as the hottest Nigerian player in Belgium at the moment with three goals to his name for his loan side Zulte-Waregem.
Olayinka scored his third goal of the season on Saturday in their 2-2 draw against Kortrijk, a tally which takes him to just a goal behind Bonaventure.
While Bonaventure has one assist this season, Olayinka is presently in the race for king of assist in Belgium with six to his name from six games this season.
