 'He was magical' - Danish winger names Onuachu as the best player he's played with

Denmark U21 international Gustav Isaksen  has namechecked Nigerian international, Paul Onuachu as the best player he has played with. 


The FC Midtjylland of Denmark winger played with the Super Eagles star while the latter was on the books of the club. 


Isaksen who rose through the ranks at the club, has weighed in with eight goals in 27 appearances for Midtjylland this season spoke on his time at the club in an interview with Danish website, Tipsbladket.dk


"I would say it is Paul Onuachu," the winger admitted on the question of the best player to have shared the pitch and dressing room with him. 


"When I came up to the first team squad, he was a striker in the team. I just think he was magical. His finishes and in the possession game he was really good.


Isaksen was impressed with Onuachu whose languid body frame wrongly gives his critics the impression of him being laid back. 


"You might not expect it, but he is just a good player. My very first training match, it was with him as a striker. It was just a great experience." 


Onuachu is now playing for English Premier League side, Southampton after his move from Belgian Pro League top club, Genk in the January transfer window. 


Onuachu appeared in 181 official matches during his seven-year association with FC Midtjylland, scoring 74 goals.
