Former Golden Eaglets and Flying Eagles coach John Obuh said defender Kenneth Omeruo will be the next Nigerian player to rise to prominence like Chelsea’s rising star Victor Moses.
Omeruo like Moses has been shipped out on loan to several clubs by Chelsea. But Obuh said Omeruo has what it takes to perform at the top level, if given a chance by Chelsea coach Antonio Conte.
‘All he needs is a chance just like Victor Moses. We all saw how he was sent on several loans but finally got his chance under Antonio Conte, and he is making his mark,’ Obuh said.
‘He is very good in playing several roles, due to his training as a full back before he finally settled for a central defence role, you also have to know that he is very comfortable as a defensive midfielder.’
Omeruo is currently on loan at Alanyaspor after three previous spells away from Stamford Bridge.
