Onuachu tests positive for coronavirus

Nigeria international and Genk star Paul Onuachu has tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday.

The striker has returned to the Luminus Arena amid the relaxation of lockdown in major cities across the globe.

As reported by Het Laaste Niuews, the Smurfs were subjected to a Covid-19 test in the build-up to Thursday’s pre-season game against Eendracht Termien with only the Nigerian testing positive.

However, he has gone into quarantine while the proposed exhibition game will go on as planned.

Onuachu joined the Blue-White last summer from Danish side Midtjylland and has become a key component of Hannes Wolf’s team.

Before the Belgian top-flight was cancelled due to the pandemic, the Super Eagles striker scored 10 goals and provided two assists which helped his side to a seventh-place finish.

The 26-year-old started his career with Nigeria lower division outfit Ebedei before moving to Denmark in 2012 to join Midtjylland.

There, he bagged 52 goals in 135 league games during his seven-year stay with the MCH Arena outfit.
