Super Eagles forward Paul Onuachu has said he is gradually getting back to his best after he was injured before the season kicked off in Belgium, reports PNO Sports.

Onuachu was the match winner for Genk at OH Leuven at the weekend.

The 28-year-old striker, who scored 21 goals last season, has now netted four goals in his last three matches.

“We gave everything for the team (vs OH Leuven),” Onuachu told HLN.  

“In the end I was finished, but we have a lot of good players who could come in.

“I am gradually getting back to almost 100 percent. I just want to play, have fun and meet up with the coach’s expectations. I enjoy his confidence.”

PNO Sports reports that Onuachu said he is not disturbed by criticisms against him in the media.

“As a footballer you have to be able to live with people talking about you. I don’t care. I don’t really follow the media,” he said.

“It’s simple: I was injured at the beginning of the season and had to be fit again. It was tough for a while, but I’m a professional.”
