Kenneth Omeruo

explains why he played in the second division for the club, knowing that he is going to receive half of what he used to earn in the La Liga.

“It wasn’t an easy decision to stay and play in the second division,”

Omeruo told AOI


“I asked if they were going to cut my salary to 50% and they said yes but I told them we might have a problem but then, again I thought about it and decided to stay.

“I have lived two years in Spain and this was a club that gave me an opportunity because when I was with Chelsea they always loaned me out to several clubs and I did not really have a home that time.

“So for me, it was only fair that I risk one season in the second division to try and come back at the first ask.”

Omeruo says his side that stands in the fourth position of the table will do everything to get back to La Liga.

“Definitely, I wish you watch our matches, we have an amazing team; we play good football but we are unlucky most times,”

he continued


“Also, the second division is really tough but we are focused and won’t give room for any slip-ups.”
