2020/21 Pro Footballer Of The Year Award: Onuachu Among Finalists

Super Eagles star Paul Onuachu has been listed among the three finalists for the 2020/21 Pro Footballer of the Year award.

The former FC Midtjylland star has been a phenomenon all season with KRC Genk.

Club Brugges Dutchman Noa Lang and Beerschot’s forward Raphael Holzhauser are the other two nominees included.

Lang, who only arrived from Ajax in the summer, is the elegant 21-year-old attacking midfielder whose 16 goals and 11 assists in all competitions powered Brugges to the league title.

Holzhauser was the architect of newly-promoted Beerschot’s incredible rise to the top of the league during the first-half of the season with the Austrian eventually contributing 16 goals and 16 assists in 34 matches.

However, Genk’s Onuachu is the favourite to win the prestigious Belgium’s top honour.

Onuachu made the headlines almost every week as he smashed 33 goals to help Racing finish runners-up on the First Division A table.
