Onyekuru must prove himself at new club Monaco –Yobo

Nigeria and Everton legend Joseph Yobo claims Henry Onyekuru must prove his quality at new club Monaco.

The 22-year-old’s inability to secure a work permit in England cut his dream to play for the Toffees, having joined the Merseysiders in 2017. 

Before teaming up with the Monegasques on a five-year deal, Onyekuru was sent on loan to Anderlecht, and then Galatasaray, where he helped the Lions win a domestic double last season.

Although Yobo feels disappointed about the young striker’s inability to represent the Goodison Park side owing to work permit issues, he believes Onyekuru’s move to Monaco is a new chapter for him – and must justify his worth to show what the Premier League is missing.

After changing their managers thrice last season, Monaco were eliminated from the Champions League, the French Cup, and narrowly escaped relega-tion from Ligue 1. However, Yobo thinks playing for such team is a good chance for Onyekuru to show his class like he did in Turkey.
