By Amosu Adeboye

Leganes defender Kenneth Omeruo hopes to make a quick return to action for the club after picking up an injury in Saturday’s 2-1 home defeat to champions Barcelona.

Omeruo, who put up a fine performance in the encounter at the Estadio Municipal de Burtaque was replaced by Rodri Tarin seven minutes from time.

His international teammate, Chidozie Awaziem was unused substitute in the game.

Morocco midfielder Youssef En-Nesyri put Leganes ahead in the 12th minute, but Barcelona rallied back with goals from Luis Suarez and Arturo Vidal in the second half to earn maximum points in the game.

“Going to be back soon… we keep fighting together with our strong supporters #vamosleganes #omeruo,”reads a tweet on his Twitter handle.

The 26-year-old has made nine league appearances for Leganes this season.
