The Nigerian International joined the Trabzonspor on a season-long loan from Southampton and has briskly adjusted to a new life since his summer transfer window.

After the match, Onuachu praised the team’s performance, emphasizing that they began the game strongly and demonstrated excellent teamwork in the first half.

He added: “To be honest, I personally don’t follow history very much. But if you come to a team like Trabzonspor, of course you try to help your team, you try to make your fans happy. I am very happy with my individual performance for myself and my team. I have never set a goal goal in any team I have played for so far. I said of course I will always try to score. But I did not set a goal or number for myself in this regard. I will be targeted and focused, match by match.”
Speaking about the competitive nature of the Super Lig, Onuachu acknowledged its difficulty and strength. He pointed out that every team in the league, including Siltaş Yapı Pendikspor, possesses the capability to defeat any opponent.
“If you look at the team we play today, you can see how well they played even though they were in the league last year. Every team in this league is capable of beating every team.
