Super Eagles Striker Puts Pressure On Teammates To Win Turkish Super Lig

15 Apr 2019, 11:50

Super Eagles striker Henry Onyekuru has put pressure on his teammates at Galatasaray as they aim to win the Turkish Super Lig title.

The 21-year-old scored for Galatasaray in a 1-1 draw with Fenerbahce on Sunday when he put his side ahead in the 66th minute before Eljif Elmas equalised for the hosts five minutes later.

“When you play against your rival, it is a very important and nice feeling for a footballer to score in such a match. I’m happy to have this feeling, but it was a game we wanted to win,” Onyekuru told Galatasaray’s official website.

“The score did not satisfy us. After this time, we have nothing to do. We have to put this match aside and prepare for each match separately.

“You know anything can happen in football. There are five-point difference but every moment can be everything. We need to fix our mistakes, we need to work harder and continue without error. As I have just said, anything can happen at any moment.”

The champions missed a good chance to put pressure on leaders Istanbul Basaksehir who lost 2-1 to Besiktas on Saturday.

Fathi Terim’s men trailed Basaksehir with five points with six games remaining before the end of the campaign.

Onyekuru has scored 12 goals in 26 league appearances for Galatasaray this season.
