He is an integral part of this team and we have confidence in him. Whenever he is brought up he is always doing well.

“He is still young and we should understand that. He told me that as a striker the first thing in his mind is to score goals. Yeah, that is normal as a striker but we have to play together as a team. If you have a chance to score, score but if you don’t have a chance to score just pass the ball to the nearest person and I told him not to let what people are talking about him worry him,” Eguavoen said.
