He Won’t Play As Top Striker: Coach Hints At New Role For Everton Loanee Onyekuru


Coach of Belgian side Anderlecht has revealed that Everton loanee Henry Onyekuru won’t be given the role as the main striker of his team due to the presence of the top scorer for the club last season.


A delighted Rene Weiler ‎praised the club for capturing Onyekuru on loan, but also speak about some areas the 20 year old need to improve in his game.

” Onyekuru is only 20. He has to learn a lot especially in the defensive field. But he is vary dangerous in the offensive part and scores easily when defenders make mistakes. Now he has to take the next step”, he told Het Laatste Nieuws.

Despite praising his finishing abilities the coach however revealed he won’t play the Nigerian as his main striker as he feels he won’t work well with the top scorer of the club for last season Lukasz Teodorczyk.

” Putting him next to Teo won’t be a good idea. They would take space away from each other. I prefer to leave room from midfielders coming into the box, that’s why Pieter Gerkens is one of my joker”.
