Kenneth Omeruo is not an unknown name in football having enjoyed a significant rise to fame locally and globally.
Currently 28, Omeruo was born on October 17, 1993, in Abia State Nigeria.

He had trials at Sunshine Stars in Nigeria and Anderlecht in Belgium. But he didn’t have a professional contract until 2010.
He signed for Standard Liège, and played at the club for two years before getting snapped up by Chelsea in 2012 and immediately loaned to Dutch side ADO Den Haag.
