Super Eagles defender Kenneth Omeruo has been named the captain of La Liga relegated club CD Leganes.
The Spanish Segunda Division club also appointed four players as assistants to Omeruo. They are Juan Muñoz Muñoz, Jose Manuel Arnaiz, Sergio González, and Asier Riesgo.
The 28-year-old Nigerian is one of the oldest members in the Leganes squad.
The centre-back joined the Cucumber Growers on loan from Premier League giants, Chelsea in 2018.
The transfer was made permanent the following season.
Leganes were relegated to the Spanish second tier in the 2019/20 season after finishing in 18th position on the table.
Omeruo has shunned several offers to remain at the club.
