Super Eagles striker Dessers has doubts about his future at Racing Genk
Nigeria international Cyriel Dessers has doubts about his future at Belgian First Division A club Racing Genk.

The former Heracles Almelo attacker saw himself fall down the pecking order after the opening four matches in the division following the brilliant form of international teammate Paul Onuachu, who continues to break records this season.

Dessers had not scored in the league for more than five months before his match-winning strike versus RSC Anderlecht this past weekend.

The 26-year-old displayed his goalscoring instincts by scoring five goals in a single game as Racing Genk thrashed Westerlo 5-1 in a friendly last month.

Though Onuachu, Dessers main rival for a starting shirt, is expected to move on to pastures new in the summer, the Belgian-Nigerian's spot in the team is not guaranteed as Genk have been linked with other strikers.

Quizzed on his future, Dessers said to Het Laatste Nieuws : "Yes, I had my doubts. And I cannot say that those doubts have now disappeared with that one goal.

"At the moment it is also of little use to go deeper into my future, the moment itself is too good for that.

"I will see what will happen in the summer, a lot will also depend on what will happen to the other players."

Dessers still has a contract with Racing Genk for three more seasons.
