Southampton manager, Nathan Jones, was delighted with Nigerian striker Paul Onuachu after he made his Premier League debut against Brentford on Saturday.
The 28-year-old Nigeria international completed his switch from KRC Genk to St Mary’s Stadium on the final day of the January transfer window.
The deadline day transfer signing failed to make an impact as the Saints lost 3-0 to continue their poor run with eight losses in their last nine games.
However, the Welsh tactician is confident that the Nigerian striker will be a positive addition to the squad alongside the other new signings.
“They’ve added to the squad, they’ve stepped up their performance, they’ve given us a little more focus, a little more aggression, more front footing, and we’ve been better in the second half,” Jones reflected. after the match, as Hamphirelive mentioned.
“But at the end, a ball is turned over, you don’t score and they score. We put as many balls in their box as we did in ours, if not more, but they put up a challenge, were close to touch and did the basics very well. That’s disappointing, because my teams are usually at the grassroots level in the first division.’
Southampton suffered their 14th Premier League defeat of the season on Saturday and dropped to bottom of the table.
Since taking over at St Mary’s Stadium in November 2022, the 49-year-old tactician has won just one and lost six of his seven games.
