Leganes defender, Kenneth Omeruo, has admitted that he is happy to have cut ties with Chelsea.
Omeruo was sold by Chelsea this summer to the LaLiga outfit.
“Every year I thought it was the opportunity to play for Chelsea, but in the end it didn’t come. So last season I told them: ‘Let me go play in LaLiga and see if I have a level’,” he told AS.
And after proving himself, Omeruo learned Chelsea didn’t want to keep him.
“I had several options, but the coach at the time (Mauricio Pellegrino) gave me a lot of confidence and told me that he wanted me to stay.
“The club made an effort to sign me. I didn’t think they could buy me from Chelsea, but they got me.”
