A fantastic season with Genk has seen Nigerian footballer, Paul Onuachu bag a new international award.

He has won the Ebony Shoe award for the Best African player In Belgium for the 2020/21 season.

The Nigeria international succeeded Antwerp and Congo Democratic Republic forward Dieurmaci Mbokani as the winner of this year’s award.

The 27-year-old was top scorer in the Belgian Pro-League with 29 goals in 33 appearances. He scored four times in five games in the Jupiler Pro League PlayOff and once in the Beker van Belgie to bring his total tally to 35 in 41 games.
