    Onyekuru wants to play full 90mins week in and out that was why he choose gala over val yet he didn’t play 5secs at their super cup. My point now is that playing in sokoto or soweto you will still fight for shirt before you start because no coach will keep a good or experienced player on the bench. So running away from Valencia which is a better club that appreciates utility player like onyekuru was not a wise one. Anyway good luck and prove yourself when you get the chance to play
