Fit-again Leganes Defender Omeruo Raring To Go Under Caretaker Manager
Nigeria international Kenneth Omeruo is in line to earn his seventh league appearance of the season for his Spanish La Liga outfit, Leganes this weekend.

The central defender was unavailable for Nigeria's international friendly against Brazil due to injury but has since made his return to action in Leganes's last game versus Getafe in the La Liga.

This morning, the former Chelsea defender was pictured in a training session with his teammates at the ID Butarque stadium in preparation for their domestic league game with Mallorca on Saturday.

Should he take part in games against Eibar, Real Madrid and Real Sociedad coming up later next month, Omeruo will thus, presumably not be lacking in fitness by the time he reports for international duty next month.

The 2013 Nations Cup winner has started six of Leganes's nine league games this season, missing games versus Osasuna, Villarreal and Levante.

Los Pepineros management earlier this month parted ways with erstwhile manager Mauricio Pellegrino following a poor run of results with reserve-team coach Luis Cembranos and his assistant Carlos Martinez expected to take charge for the time being.
