Omeruo Cites Class, Rhythm In Win Over Betis

Leganes of Spain defender, Kenneth Omeruo has pointed to his side’s ability to show a high level of class and rhythm in their 3-0 win against Real Betis.

Omeruo was excited that his side also got another clean sheet, as they recorded their third straight win in La Liga.

The dark-skinned stopper, who is on loan from Chelsea of England, added that he was equally happy to see his side show what they are worth in Saturday’s game.

Although he ended up getting a third yellow in the season, which might rule him out of Leganes’ next game, Omeruo says he hopes his side can replicate their recent feat of going ten matches without defeat.

Omeruo added with glee: “It was a convincing victory and we kept another clean sheet. This is a third straight match we have not lost.

“We showed class, we proved our worth, we are gradually  getting the rhythm expected of us.

“Not forgetting we went as far as 10 matches unbeaten before we lost a game and now it’s three matches on the roll again.”

Rohr Hopes Ighalo Gets New Club Before February 28

Super Eagles coach, Gernot has expressed optimism that Changchun Yatai of China striker, Odion Jude Ighalo will still be able to get a new club before the close of the Chinese transfer window on February 28.

Although Rohr acknowledged that a good player would be welcome to the Eagles even if he is playing a in a lower division, the Franco-German gaffer hinted that it would be better seeing Ighalo in the top-flight.

Rohr also assessed other players in the Nigerian squad, and reckoned that those who moved in the January transfer window knew they had to take steps to keep their shirts.

He pointed out that Ighalo would need to do  the same, as only those playing regularly with their clubs would hold firm spots in the Eagles, but he equally admitted that the former Watford striker has proven his class over the months with the Nigerian squad.

Rohr, however, stressed that his best wish for Ighalo, who joined Yatai in January 2017, would be for him to get another club on a higher level before the close of business for deals in the Chinese Super League.

The Eagles’ gaffer added: “We will see with Ighalo, I hope that he will change the club now to play, not to stay in the second division in China.

”He’s doing so well for the Super Eagles, he scored so many goals and has confidence.

”We still need him but also in good fitness. He had a little injury on the knee, I hope he will be fit again and play in his club.

”The players, especially at the end of the FIFA window, some of them changed their clubs.

”All the time, it is important to have communication with our players and also the staff.

”We told the players not playing for their clubs to go to other clubs where they can play.”
