Chelsea Legend – Ake’s Return To Chelsea Should Give Omeruo Hope


The decision of English Premier League giant Chelsea to recall defender Nathan Ake from his loan spell at Bournemouth is a move that should encourage Nigeria international Kenneth Omeruo.


Omeruo has been out on loan since joining Chelsea in 2013, enduring loan spells in Holland, England and Turkey where his performances have still not earn him a spot in the first team of Chelsea.

Former Chelsea legend and defender Celestine Babayaro said so during a short interview with on the chances of Kenneth Omeruo cutting it at Chelsea, when his loan with Turkish side Alanyaspor ends in the summer.

” Times are changing, and Nathan Ake’s recall should encourage Omeruo. It shows the manager is monitoring players out on loan and willing to give them a chance if they prove themselves”, Babayaro told

” Omeruo will get his chance soon but he needs to focus on doing his best for his Turkish side, I heard he has played as a defensive midfielder in their last two games. The versatility will no doubt enhance his chances at Chelsea”.
