Super Eagles defender, Kenneth Omeruo is optimistic his football academy will provide a viable platform to aspiring talents as he hopes to build future stars for the various national teams, AOIFootball.com reports.
The Leganes of Spain player, who was present at the final day screening of the Kenneth Omeruo Football Academy in Abuja, told reporters at the training base that he was satisfied with the level of competitiveness witnessed all through the three days trials.
“For now it’s an academy and we don’t know how what the future holds but we just want to train the boys and select a good team by merit and I am happy with what I have seen so far.
“Football is my passion and I know there isn’t a lot of opportunities out there especially for the young players. If we have to wait for them to play in the various National teams we won’t get the best players because most times the best players don’t even have transport fares to go for trials,” Omeruo said.
The former Chelsea defender also revealed that he has already paved way for two players from his academy to join the Leganes academy and will even hope for more to also get a chance to play for the National team in the future.
“I have two players already signed with Leganes and I hope to make the platform open for more players.
“Definitely, I will feel happy if they go on to represent the national team and I will always encourage them to remember this day and also urge them to return and give back to the society,” Omeruo concluded.
