I definitely wouldn't call him world class, cause that will be far reaching...but his overall awareness, composure, and reading of the game has massively improved since he moved to Leganes. The La Liga has definitely added some technical finesse to his game, Balogun and Omeruo definitely make a very solid pair as they are very intelligent defenders, and judging by yesterday's friendly... I noticed they just don't punt their passes aimlessly when under pressure (something Ekong is often guilty of), but pass the ball well. I just hope Omeruo grows into a key player for us cause I see leadership qualities in him after Mikel retires.

I'm surprised that his performance in La Liga has not led to other Spanish teams showing an interest in him.
It seems he's going to sign for Leganes.
IMO, he's good enough for teams on the levels of Valencia and Sevilla.

His hasn’t changed but the perception has since he moved to Spain. Those that don’t want to call him a world class player will do so if he moved to Bornemouth.

Omeruo has NEVER been world class. We haven't had a world class CB since Taribo West.

Has Omeruo ever performed at the level of Sergio Ramos, Gerard Pique, Bonucci, Chiellini, Thiago Silva, Godin, Vincent Kompany, Alaba, Koulibaly?

Or the level of Lahm, Vidic, Ferdinand, Terry, Carvalho, Cannavaro, Maldini, Puyol, Cafu, Beckenbauer, Matthaus, Nesta, Baresi, Taribo, Keshi, Chukwu?

Omeruo has not even played at the level Godwin Okpara did in 2007(?) for Strasbourg? And even at that level, Okpara was NOT world class.... not to speak of getting anywhere close to Taribo West. Abegiiii!

He isn't even a better player than Okpara was when he was playing jailhouse ball.

omeruo was definitely better than Godwin okpara. Fact! Although, taribo was a better defender than omeruo , his performance at 2013 ANC, 2014, 2018 Wc was much better than taribo performance at Super eagles 1998 and 2002 World Cups. That embarrassment in 1998 vs Holland, Yugoslavia’s, Denmark and Sweden, Argentina 2002 is still fresh in my memory

Again in my humble opinion Omeruo is world class.

His performance in 2013 ANC was world class and at that point, he became a victim of his nationality because he wasn’t given a real chance by any big team then dude just faded afterwards and became obsolete. This season, he had another good performance for his club but big clubs don’t like taking chances on African players

I am most interested in factual statements--- things that are objective and can be proven, not subjectivity.

My statement is that Omeruo has never played at the level Godwin Okpara played in that 2007 season for Strasbourg when he was unbelievable! I can back this up because you can compare Omeruo's entire career to that season Okpara had in Strasbourg which led to him eventually going to PSG. I can guarantee you that no one will ever say Omeruo has reached that level.

You claim Omeruo is better than Godwin Okpara. And then you added "Fact" for good measure. I have noticed one thing over the last few years. People add "fact" at the end of their sentence as if that is supposed to actually make the statement factual. :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

Your statement is subjective and I am going to leave it at that. I am happy I had the opportunity to watch both players and I have my opinion as to who was better.

The statement though remains that Omeruo has never performed to the level Okpara did in 2007.

No it wasnt. I cant go and dominate a football tournament in my local inter-house sports and claim that my performances were world class. His performances were fantastic after Keshi decided to drop Yobo.

Chelsea brought him in and sent him on loan to Ado Den Haag. There, he was also fantastic. At the World cup in 2014, he was quite good, but you could tell he was very raw. Chelsea did not trust him and sent him to Middlesbrough. At Boro, if I remember correctly, he played okay, but wasn't a consistent starter for them. A world class player who could not even be consistent in division 2. Please, let us hear word! I shouldnt even be having this conversation, as it is reducing my intelligence.

Omeruo is a top defender. He lost his way circa 2015 but has bounced back.

Godwin Okpara's form for Strasbourg in 1997 was world class and better than Omeruo in ANC 2013.
Okpara was one of the very few defenders to pocket a rampaging Ronaldo (original version) that year in the UEFA cup, a performance that led to the world noticing him and securing a move to PSG.

Wetin he win in 1997? I don’t celebrate moral victory and you should know that by now. Omeruo won ANC 2013 and was our best defender in that tournament

I feel alot of those 90s guys are overrated. I mean that SEs defence leaked goals like crazy back then.
