Kenneth Omeruo: Chelsea return, not a priority
“Play a lot of games, improve, and ensuring Leganes finish in a comfortable position top the Chelsea loanee’s priority.”
While it will be a “dream come true” to don the jersey of his parent club – Chelsea, the Nigerian revealed that achieving such feat was a secondary priority.
Kenneth Omeruo, having joined Chelsea from the Standard Liege Academy in 2012 has been a nomad with six loan spells, in four countries – England, Netherland, Turkey and Spain.
On a return to Chelsea in an interview with Brila FM, the Super Eagles of Nigeria defender replied: “Right now it’s not my priority.
“For me playing well is. And if I get called at the end of the season, fine. It will be a dream come true. But we will see what the season brings.”
Omeruo has represented Ado Den Haag, Middlesbrough, Kasimpasa (2015-16 and 2017-18), Anlayaspor – and now in Spain with Leganes – though not sure how the future might look for him, he was so sure that the season has been a great one
Besides continuous improvement, the 24-year-old, who has featured for Leganes on 19 occasions in all competition this season said he was putting all in place to ensure the Los Pepineros finish in a comfortable position.
He added: “It’s been a good season for me. To be honest I’m just concentrating with Leganes, to ensure we finish in a comfortable position. And also, make sure I play a lot of games and improve my games.
Leganes are 12 on the Spanish Laliga log – six-point adrift relegation.
