Nigerian star Paul Onuachu has been described as a phenomenon by Racing Genk technical director Dimitri De Condé.

The towering centre forward signed for English Premier League club Southampton from Belgian side Genk midway through the current season.

Onuachu, who spent three-and-a-half years with Genk, remains the Belgian Pro League top scorer with 16 goals this term.

“Paul is a phenomenon. Not only now, but also last year. He is still at the top of the scoring charts for a reason,” Onuachu said on Voetbalnieuws.

“And then you can’t forget that he didn’t play for the first two months. He has given our club a lot. You can’t do without that.

“KRC Genk, however, is more than just Paul Onuachu. That is clearly visible,” the former Sporting Charleroi midfielder continued.

“In the past we have seen the same with Ito and Pozuelo. When they left, other guys stepped up.”

Onuachu has played four Premier League games for Southampton without scoring.
