Striker Paul Onuachu has admitted that the Genk’s season isn’t going as planned, but he’s confident they can still turn things around.
The club have endured series of poor performances which left them eighth place in the Belgian league.
The latest defeat came against OH Leuven on Wednesday, and it means they have now lost four of the last seven games in the league.
Speaking to Belgian outlet Het Nieuwsblad, Onuachu reflected on the difficult season so far.
“This season was not just what we expected”.
“Sometimes we play well and suddenly we stop and start doing something else.
“We need to focus more on what we do, I think that is our biggest problem” Onuachu said.
New gaffer Berd Stoch is under huge pressure, despite only being in charge for just three months.
The German took over from John Van Den Brom who was fired in December, but he hasn’t been able to get consistent positive results for the club.
Despite the inconsistent results, Onuachu the manager is improving the players and they are getting better tactically.
“Fortunately with the new coach, we are tactically stronger. We know better how to tackle a certain opponent.” the forward said.
“Bernd demands more tactical and physical discipline, now we have to be constantly on the move.
“Bernd tells me to get into the box more and walk without the ball. While John [ Van Den Brom] said I had to make sure I was in the box.” the former FC FC Midtjylland forward said.
Onuachu was in action in Genk’s 2- defeat to Leuven in the Belgian top flight on Wednesday night.
