Kenneth Omeruo received a massive boost to his Chelsea future after manager Jose Mourinho ordered he stop training with the reserves.
“Mourinho has directed that Kenneth only train with the main squad of Chelsea and no longer with the reserves,” Omeruo’s adviser Chika Akujobi informed MTNFootball.com
“This clearly shows the increased confidence the coach has in the player.”
However, it is most likely the Nigeria international defender will still be shipped out of loan when the winter transfer window opens next month.
“Chelsea are studying various loan offers for Kenneth. They want him to enjoy regular playing time and so will work with a club who can guarantee this,” Akujobi said.
“But most importantly they want him to stay back in England.”
There have been several interests for the Eagles star mostly from clubs in the English Championship.
Omeruo, who first played on loan for a season and a half at Dutch club ADO Den Haag, will need to start playing first-team football in the new year, which is also a World Cup year.
