Nigeria forward Henry Onyekuru has further reiterated his desire not play for Belgian club Anderlecht next season due to his poor relationship with manager of the club, Hein Vanhaezebrouck, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.
Onyekuru, 20, spent the 2017/2018 season on loan at the former Belgian champions from English club Everton.
Everton and Anderlecht reportedly have an agreement for the striker to stay for another season but he is not willing to remain with the latter.
Onyekuru copped a knee injury in a league game against his former club Eupen last December and, despite his impressive form prior to that which saw him score nine goals in 19 league games, he was not in the good books of Vanhaezabrouck who publicly criticised him at times.
He was also overlooked towards the end of the campaign despite featuring in some reserve games to prove his readiness to return to action.
“I go somewhere where I do get respect” Onyekuru told Belgian online news outlet, m.hnl.be,
“I was fit, but I did not play, so I will not stay with Anderlecht.
“The manager (Vanhaezabrouck) has not spoken to me for weeks.
“I know what he told the media about me. I heard from the media that I was not ready.
“You do not treat a player like that especially after working so hard in those months to return to action.”
The young forward has been linked with a move to Bundesliga club Borrussia Monchengladbach, while Turkish side Besiktas are also rumoured to be interested in his services.
