Omeruo inspires Leganes to 8 straight unbeaten matches


Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo’s club Leganes continued their unbeaten streak in the La Liga Santander with a goalless draw against Celta Vigo at the Balaidos stadium to extend their fairytale unbeaten form in the season to eight straight matches in all competition.


Celta Vigo the previous week had defeated Villarreal 3 – 2 away from home but was unable to get a goal in the encounter with the Nigerian international controlling proceedings in the heart of the defense.

Omeruo on loan from English side Chelsea made his first appearance for Leganes in a substitute appearance against Rayo Vallecano in a 1 – 0 win for the home side and made his first start against Atletico Madrid in a game that ended in a one-all draw and has since become a regular for the side.

Since making his first appearance, Omeruo has gathered a total of 11 appearances with 10 straight starts and with the 2013 Africa Cup of nations winner in the squad, Leganes have only lost once, against Levante in his first full start.

Omeruo in the colors of Leganess in 11 matches have seen the team win four matches, six draws and one loss.

Celebrating the feat Omeruo on his istagram handle wrote “Good to take one point from a difficult game… 8 games unbeaten. Team fought till the end.”
