Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has said he would hope to extend his time in the Spanish La Liga with CD Leganés.
Omeruo, who joined Premier League club Chelsea in 2012 and has been sent out on loan every season thereafter, said he is enjoying working with Leganes coach Mauricio Pellegrino.
Omeruo has been handed a starting berth in Leganes’ last three games having sorted out his work permit issues.
He is set to start again in today’s early kick-off clash at home against mighty Atletico Madrid.
“I want to play in CD Leganés, in Spain, i want to play and improve here. I would like to pitch my tent with Leganés,” the 25-year-old defender said in an interview.
My coach Pellegrino is a very interesting person when it comes to work, I respect him very much because he is a legend with a wonderful football pedigree, he was a great centre-back as well.
“I did not have the opportunity to see him play, but surprisingly people have spoken very well of his performances on the field.
“I talk a lot with my coach, he takes time to teach me through videos clips and tries to correct my mistakes and set me right where he sees lapses which is very important for my performance.”
The Super Eagles defender’s contract with Chelsea will run out in June 2020.
