CD Leganes of Spain defender, Kenneth Omeruo has confirmed that he will be absent from action for two weeks, thereby effectively ruling himself out of any possibility of joining the Super Eagles’ camp on Monday, megasportsarena.com reports.
In contrast with recent media reports indicating that he is back in training, after copping a knock last weekend in action for his club, Omeruo stressed that he is still in his recovery process and will not be able to play again until at least another two weeks.
The dark-skinned former Sunshine Stars of Akure, Standard Liege of Belgium and ADO Den Haag of Holland stopper, who played on loan from Chelsea of England to Middlesborugh as well as Kasimpasa and Alanyaspor of Turkey before joining Leganes on a full contract, added that he will not be able to play against Sierra Leone due to injury.
The 27-year-old Omeruo suffered an injury three minutes into the second half of Saturday’s game, as Leganes grinded out a 1-0 win against Mirandes in a Segunda Division fixture at Estadio Municipal de Butarque last weekend.
Omeruo, who is the second most experienced player named in the original 24-man squad with more than fifty international caps to his name since his debut in 2013, stated: “I am out for two weeks and not less…pls tag them to see this.”
