INTERVIEWS Henry Onyekuru is currently the best scoring Anderlecht attacker. Yet it is not an option for Hein Vanhaezebrouck to use him as a center striker. "I've already tried that a few times, but that did not work out well."

"Henry does not currently have the feeling to make the right movements from that position", according to the coach. "He may think he can, but based on what I've seen, it is clear that he does not have the feeling. He then looks for his position, often stands still and does not know where to go to."

According to Vanhaezebrouck, the Nigerian is much more dangerous if he can come from his flank. "He feels much more comfortable then. He can then occasionally dive into the center, something he does well. When he plays centrally, he even has trouble to make the movements outside. As long as that does not improve, it is not an option to put Onyekuru on a central position. ''
