Henry Onyekuru has recently joined Monaco in the French Ligue 1, and he has been warned to step up his level in order to succeed.

Monaco acquired the services of Henry Onyekuru who couldn’t continue playing in England.

He couldn’t secure a work permit and had to leave the island.

And now he has been warned of complacency by none other than Nigeria and Everton legend, Joseph Yobo.

“He is a fantastic talent and I would have loved to see his deal [with Everton] go through but work permit restricted him from playing in the Premier League,” Yobo told Goal.

“But he has shown what he’s got at Galatasaray, very exciting to watch and he can score goals as well.”

He explained: “I was happy seeing him play for Nigeria national team but he didn’t get that chance to play for Everton because he didn’t play more international games to give him the right.”

“For me as an Evertonian, I feel he is a good prospect and would have been a great talent for Everton.”

“He did very well at Galatasaray and was one of the fans’ favorites and if he had his way, he would have stayed to continue his progress but then, the club wanted to do a different business which was against his wish,” he said.

“Monaco is a good team but haven’t done well in the past few years. Everything is now new for Henry to prove himself again.”
