Omeruo happy with life in Spanish League



Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo, has revealed that he is enjoying his time in the Spanish League.

Omeruo moved to Leganes on loan from Chelsea in the summer.

And despite starting just once, the Nigerian is excited by the opportunity to cut his teeth in Spain.

"I've been playing away from England in Turkey for a while and every time I always craved for a visible league where people can watch me," he told BBC on Monday.

"Luckily, after the World Cup where I had two good games, I got more options and I chose La Liga where everyone can watch me, and so far it's been a perfect decision for me."

"Right now I'm fulfilling my dream of playing in La Liga, it's amazing and different.

"Leganes have an option to sign me permanently and I would like to give everything to stay in the league.

"I've played in the English championship, I've gotten a feel of that but La Liga is very good.

"If I end up playing for Chelsea someday fine, because it is one of the biggest teams in the world and they have the highest fan base in Nigeria.

"I would love to play for them, even if it's just a game, but right now I am very happy with my life here in Spain."

Omeruo has been capped 41 times for the Super Eagles.
