Paul Onuachu's Role in Goal Declared Own Goal: Super Eagles Star Responds Following Trabzonspor's Victory

Paul Onuachu, on loan from Southampton to Trabzonspor, played a key role in their victory over Alanyaspor. Although a goal was counted as an own goal, Onuachu emphasized the importance of securing three points. His move to Turkey has been successful, with three goals in five appearances. Trabzonspor now sits fifth in the Süper Lig standings.

Onuachu's Crucial Role in Trabzonspor's Victory

During the summer transfer window, Paul Onuachu made a notable move from Southampton FC to Tranbsonspor on a season-long loan. The forward, owned by Southampton, had been subject to rumors regarding potential injury concerns. However, he played a pivotal role in Trabzonspor's recent victory over Alanyaspor at the Papara Park.


The Super Eagles star demonstrated his influence by participating in a goal that secured a vital three points for the Black Sea Storm. Onuachu executed a penetrating run into the heart of Alanyaspor's defense, resulting in an own goal inadvertently scored by Fidan Aliti.

Despite the successful play, Onuachu's celebration was cut short as the goal was ultimately attributed as an own goal to the Swiss international. Post-match, Onuachu emphasized the significance of securing the three points. He acknowledged that it wasn't their finest performance, yet praised his teammates for their unwavering determination and fight.

Since his move from KRC Genk to England and subsequently to Trabzonspor, the towering Nigerian star has shown commendable adaptation to Turkish football. He's managed to notch three goals in his five domestic league appearances. However, his pursuit of a fourth goal was thwarted when his effort was mistakenly tallied as an own goal.

Despite the slight controversy surrounding the goal, Trabzonspor's triumph elevated them to the fifth spot in the Süper Lig standings, amassing a total of 15 points. They now trail the league leaders, Fenerbahce, by a margin of eight points. This victory signifies a positive step forward for Onuachu and his new team in their pursuit of success in the Turkish top-flight league.
