Leganes of Spain defender, Kenneth Omeruo has downplayed worries over his replacement in last weekend’s La Liga fixture with his club, as he says he is not seriously injured and will be fone before joining the Super Eagles’ camp in Asaba on June 2nd.
Although he had to bow out early in Leganes’ last game of the season, with a bruise on his knee, Omeruo insists his withdrawal was just a precautionary measure by his club, considering that their opponents, Huesca, were already relegated.
Before Saturday’s way fixture, Omeruo had been a super-regular for Leganes, with several top-notch outings to show, as the 25-year-old stopper pooled 28 appearances and helped his side finish 13th.
Amazingly, following Omeruo’s exit in the 53rd minute, Leganes gave up their lone goal lead and eventually lost the game 2-1, in what could be seen as another confirmation of his relevance to the squad.
However, Omeruo chose not to dwell on his withdrawal and the result, as he says he is already thinking about getting a short holiday with his wife, before heading to the Eagles’ camp, before which he says he will be fine.
“I will be fine, it was nothing too serious. It was just a kick to my knee and the substitution was just a precautionary one.
“I will be going on holidays with my family for now before returning home for the AFCON preparations,” Omeruo told AOIFootball.com.
