Genk's Dessers Insists He Can Play With Onuachu After Scoring First Goal From Open Play
Cyriel Dessers has insisted that he can play alongside Paul Onuachu in attack in the wake of Racing Genk's 4-0 demolition of KAS Eupen in the Belgian First Division A on Friday.

Genk's Danish manager Jess Thorup handed Dessers his first start in the league since August 30, 2020 when he went the distance in the 2-1 defeat to the champions Club Brugge.

And the Super Eagles striker repaid his manager's faith by doubling Genk's advantage with a right-footed shot three minutes into the second half, assisted by his compatriot and strike partner Onuachu.

Before this fixture, the 25-year-old had not scored from open play, with his two strikes coming from the spot in matches with Zulte Waregem and Beerschot V.A.

"From the day I stepped in here, Paul already clicked," says Dessers to HLN.

"It doesn't feel like we are competitors. I think we can also offer a lot together on the field. His goal in Zulte Waregem came after I won a duel and today it was the other way around. That seems like a good recipe. "

Onuachu, the leading scorer in the division, took his tally in the league to nine goals after opening the scoring against Eupen.
