Bournemouth manager Gary O’neil has lauded the performance of Ghanaian international Antoine Semenyo on his debut.
The attacker who joined the Premier League side from Bristol City was handed his debut in the English Premier League clash against Brighton on Saturday, February 4, 2023.
Semenyo was, however, denied a debut goal following brilliant defending by the Seagulls at the Amex Park.
O’neil believes the 23-year-old forward will be a threat for Premier League defenders as the season grows.
“They (Semenyo and Traore) did well. Like I said they were part of the reason why we were a threat today. The new boys settled well and Traore was a little tired so I had to change him. I am pleased for those and they deserve some points,” he said after the defeat to Brighton.
Japanese sensation Kaoru Mitoma netted the winner for the host with three minutes remaining.
Semenyo is expected to start when Bournemouth host Newcastle United at the Vitality stadium on Saturday.
