Omeruo Doubtful For Leganes Laliga SmarkBank New Season Opener Vs Las Palmas

Nigeria defender, kenneth Omeruo, is a huge doubt for CD Leganes when the club play host to Las Palmas in the opening game of the 2020/21 LaLiga Smartbank season at the Estadio Municipal de Butarque on Friday, September 11.

The Super Eagles star was injured on Saturday in Leganes final pre-season warm-up game – the goalless draw at Albacete Balompie.

Omeruo was replaced by Josua Mejias in the 12th minute of the game and Leganes are now sweating on the fitness of their Nigerian import who joined the club on loan from Chelsea in
August 2019 before making his stay in the outskirt of Madrid permanent last season.

He featured 51 times in two seasons for Leganes in the LaLiga, starting 49 of the games and scoring once.

With Leganes relegated to the second tier of Spanish football, the club will be banking on the experience of their Nigerian import for a quick return to the LalLiga.

  • This guy with injury are just 5&6, he hardly feature in 4 consecutive marches for the team last season and he is one of the reason the team got relegated bcos they rely so much on him, I just pray he got it right and this injuries don’t end his career before it end.

    I only fear for his Super Eagles slot with the resurgence of the Oyinbo wall. Balogun back to his best at Rangers and Ekong doing well with Udinese. Semi Ajayi about featuring in the Premier League.

    Injury can’t just help you now Omeruo. The best you can wish for this season is constant top display at LaLiga Smartbank. Anyways, wishing you quick recovery

    Kenneth will get better club. One of the main stay of our defence. God will heal him
