Genk’s prolific Nigerian striker Paul Onuachu has been extended and upgraded by the Belgian club.
There is no love, there is only proof of love. So we could summarize the logic that presided over the extension of Paul Onuachu in Genk for an additional season. Now linked to the Belgian club until June 2024, the huge Nigerian striker will benefit from a substantial salary increase. “We wanted to thank Paul for what he represents at KRC Genk,” club general manager Erik Gerits said in the columns of the Het Belang van Limburg. When such an important contract is extended, a new salary accompanies it. On the other hand, the mutual bond is further strengthened, and we are better armed because the player does not enter his last year of contract after this season. “
A future transfer under conditions
the message sent to the courtiers of the Super Eagle, numerous last summer (English clubs and OL were mentioned) is clear: if a club wishes to recruit Paul Onuachu (27 years old), it will be necessary to pay the price. “We communicate very openly with each other, Paul also knows that we will never block him if he can achieve the transfer of his dreams. But only if the conditions are good for him and for us, ”added the manager frankly. Former FC Midtjylland player, who scored 33 goals in the Jupiler Pro League last season, finished top scorer in the championship, Ebony shoe and professional footballer of the year in Belgium.
