Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo, has given Coach Sunday Oliseh a pass mark, saying the legendary ex-Eagles captain will take the new team to greater heights.

“Oliseh is a legend of Nigerian football and the players respect him.

“He understands the game and I am sure he will take us to greater heights,” he said.

Omeruo further revealed that he is “enjoying life” at Turkish club Kasimpasa Spor Kulübü, and wants to help the Apaçiler (Apaches) claim silverware this season.

He joined the club on a season-long loan deal from English Premier League champions, Chelsea on July 20 and is now ready to make a big impression in the Super Lig.

The 21-year-old has already racked up 270 minutes of action in Kasimpasa’s opening three league games this season against Gençlerbirligi, Istanbul Basaksehir and Gaziantepspor.

“I am enjoying life in Turkey and I am looking to help my club do as well as possible this season. We have two out of three league games this season and will continue to fight till the end.

“Fenerbahçe, Besiktas and Galatasaray are seen as the big clubs in Turkey but we will give everything to make our fans happy at the end of the season,” Omeruo told supersport.com.

Omeruo made his Nigeria debut in 2013 and has gone on to earn 28 caps for the Super Eagles.
