In what seemed like a farewell address, Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo who has signed a five year contract with Spanish club side Leaganès, took to his Instagram page to pay eulogy to the fans and former assistant manager of his former club, Chelsea.
“I have nothing but love for this club.” The strong centre-back wrote. “@chelseafc made my dreams as a child become a reality. Thank you for an amazing 7 years. Thanks to all Chelsea fans for the love. Thank you Eddie Newton, you are an amazing coach and manager. I will never forget this club but it is time to move on and realise my potential”, he added.
It would be recalled that Kenneth Omeruo signed for Chelsea from Standard Liege in January 2012 and was immediately loaned out to different clubs until he secured a permanent deal with CD Leganès for fee of 4.5 million euros.
His contract at the Spanish club side will see him there until the summer of 2024.
