'He Sometimes Reminds Me Of Jan Koller' - Genk's Onuachu Backed For Starting Spot
Former Belgium international striker Wesley Sonck believes Paul Onuachu has what it takes to be a permanent fixture in Racing Genk's starting line-up.

The Super Eagles star has yet to break into Racing Genk's starting line-up since his summer move from FC Midtjylland, making only three starts from a possible ten across all competitions.

Sonck says Onuachu has similar playing style to Czech Republic's record goalscorer in history, Jan Koller.

''I think he is an extra weapon. He sometimes reminds me of Jan Koller,'' Sonck explained to Sporza via Voetbal Primeur.

''Onuachu is a constant threat in the eighteen. He is 2.02 meters and has good feet. With him you can give a ball faster from the flank and he is always in the right place.

''Maybe it's an option to play with two strikers, because there are a few guys at Genk that I find absolutely substandard. Bongonda is unrecognizable and I also wonder what extra Hagi brings.''

Racing Genk will do battle with European champions Liverpool in the Champions League on Wednesday evening.
