Former Super Eagles winger Tijani Babangida has approved the decision of Paul Onuachu joining Southampton.
Southampton sealed completed a deadline day move for the Jupiler League top scorer from KRC Genk on Tuesday.
The Saints are battling relegation in the Premier League and Onuachu’s move has been viewed as desperate.
Tijani Babangida, who made 77 appearances for Ajax, has defended the move claiming the big CF has what it takes to pull Southampton from relegation and even earn himself another big move.
“Many people will look at the position of Southampton and the position of Genk in Belgium and question the move,” Babangida told FL.
“I believe that if Onuachu plays in Southampton, he could help keep them from relegating. He only needs 5 to 10 very good games.
“A solid time at the Club could earn him a move to bigger teams like Arsenal, Barcelona, Madrid or any other big clubs in Europe.
“He can participate in the Champion League were they can be able to see him more but I think he just came out to fight and face the challenges ahead of him.”
“If he’s able to keep his goal scoring record, but it’s a big challenge. He wants to face the challenge and try to see what he can do because that team he is fighting survival. I hope he will make it and I believe he will make it.”
