Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has said that he is not quitting English Premier League side Chelsea FC.
Omeruo said he intends to return from his loan stint at Turkish side Alanyaspur to force his way into the Chelsea squad ahead of the new season.
“A report that said I am quitting Chelsea is not true,” Omeruo said while signing a management deal with Temple Management Company (TMC).
“I am going back to Chelsea for the pre-season tour to fight for a chance at the first team,” the defender added.
Omeruo said he’s looking forward to working with TMC, having been apprised of the company’s pedigree.
“Let me be frank, I have never had any brand management team that is working with me in Nigeria before now,” he said.
“It has been really difficult for brands willing to work with me to reach me and with TMC, I know all that is now a thing of the past.
“I am impressed with what I have heard about Temple Management Company from a distance. I look forward to growing my brand with TMC.
“Out there in Europe, I have encountered a lot of talent management companies but this is the very first time I am seeing it in Nigeria.”
Since joining the Premier League champions in 2012, Omeruo has been loaned to ADO Den Haag, Middlesbrough, Kasımpaşa, and Alanyaspor.
