Onuachu backs Southampton to escape relegation from Premier League

Super Eagles forward, Paul Onuachu, has tipped his new club  Southampton to escape relegation from the English Premier League..


Onuachu was a deadline Day signing by Southampton from Belgian side Genk, where he scored a total of 85 goals in 134 matches.


Southampton are bottom of the Premier League and Onuachu said survival is the only priority on his mind.


“I’m very motivated, it’s a huge challenge,” he told the club official website.


“Coming here we are last on the table and everybody is working to really try to leave the relegation zone.


“It’s a huge challenge, not just for me but for everybody in the team. I’m going to give it all if I have the chance to play, and try to help the team to survive.”


The 28-year-old striker is now the tallest striker in the English Premier League at 6 feet seven inches after he signed a contract for three and half years.


“Of course it helps a lot, having this height. I’m in there with my height to make a difference in the box, so I think that’s why God gave me this height! If I have the right balls in the box, of course you can see my height will tell”, said Onuachu.


Speaking on his dream move to the Premier League, Onuachu said, “I think it had to be now or never. I think I’m at the right age and I think I had to take this challenge and test myself, to impact my team. Hopefully we do something great together.


“It’s a decision I took because coming to Southampton and playing in the Premier League, the best league in the world, I’m coming to really impact my own team – it’s something big for me in my career.


“I have always followed the Premier League, watching it week in week out, seeing the games. It’s a whole different ball game, the intensity, the duels.


“Every player dreams of playing in the Premier League, and of course I’m happy to be here. I think I have the physique, I have the height, I have the size. Let the battle begin”, Onuachu added.
