Afcon 2013:Odemwingie Lashes Keshi

That the provisional squad list of the Super Eagles for AFCON 2013 has been released by Coach Stephen Keshi and two prominent players; defender Taye Taiwo and Peter Osaze Odemwingie were missing on that list is no longer news.

But what is news is that the WBA striker, Osaze Odemwingie has refused to keep quiet,as he reacted swiftly to his exclusion lashing out at the Nigeria head coach; Stephen Keshi in what is seen as a probably a climax of a long cold war as he also took on some other personalities plus the media, this he did through his social media network account; Twitter (@OdemwingieP) today.

According to the WBA striker even though he was advised by a wise one to tread softly, he feels it’s time to clear himself of some charges being levelled against him to his fans, as he threatened that today’s tweets might be the last because he might shut down the account .

“A wise man advised me after 1st tweet that there r other ways to make someone look stupid. I am not interested in that.  Just cleared maself.

“The only reason I write this is for the fans to know my reasons and position on few things and don’t think I don’t care or too proud.

“On my not inclusion to the Eagles list I am not surprised. Not surprised Keshi and NFF couldn’t tell me themselves. No personality!

“We talk through press hahaha how come I am the only stubborn one but no ex-Eagles player was sent off from the team with respect?

“Keshi has no footballing reasons not to invite me but is not saying the truth. He is still in my plans he said haha coach u no dey my plans.

“To some who wanna put mouth here please act like men. When two men talk 3rd has nothing to do. So Ikpeba and the rest talk to me face to face.

“This is all a comedy and our poor fans are being fed with lies while they cutting the cake for themselves.

“(The) NFF spokesman told MTN he is arrogant? I am arrogant? Why did (the) country’s president threaten to close down our federation for two years?

“Why didn’t Lagerback continue with (the) Super Eagles after (the 2010) World Cup? Chop and run was his plan and they knew it.

“Nigerian fans voted me Nigerian Player of the Year during (the) World Cup qualifiers and I was a spectator in the World Cup and I should be quiet?

“Because after we got Olympic silver I didn’t say Siasia is ready for Eagles he waited till he gets the job to axe me?”

“Okay that childish thing about shirt aside. WBA needed me back for (an) important game and Siasia refused to let me miss a midweek friendly game?

 

“Where is commonsense there? The game was played in an 80,000 capacity stadium with 2,000 spectators. That’s how important the game was!

“They can’t spoil my name! That’s when I ask myself – do we not have a team captain and federation who can tell it’s commonsense? And settle the matter? Na wow oh.

“Then they don’t invite (Vincent) Enyeama our number one for a crucial qualifying game because he complained about a flight or something little? Ridiculous.

“This might sound disrespectful but (the) Eagles had no good captain for many years. Everyone looking only after himself.

“Then SWAN sends a letter to NFF to warn me. (Sorry about that tweet didn’t mean it that way). But tell your colleagues not to make up stories.

“After Afcon in Ghana, (the) Eagles fans were satisfied with our performance and Siasia after the tournament said I will take you to the Olympics.

“They sacked Berti Vogts after it though and just a month after that coach Amodu took over! In his first game in charge I didn’t even warm up,” wrote the angry striker.

He claimed again that an NFF Official called him only to begin to insult him while he tweeting these] messages.

“NFF member just called me. Of course got insulted. I told him I sang national anthem for ten years to be treated like this.

“That’s it on this. Story ended. No more talks about national team again. I’ve said all I wanted. If will be tempted will go off twitter,”.

    you are suspose to be a professional, act like one peter, stop crying, stop your shakara, niga is bigger than u. if not for super eagles you will not even be in a second rate club like wba.

    it is only fair that he expelled the thoughts in his mind and he should be credited with bravery for doing so not vilified. Meanwhile, peter i have watched you over the years and only a critic will put your commitment in doubt However, i think you should move on! if he doesnt want you, he doesnt and i believe you must from now on show robustness by supporting the team in every way possible. you know we can not all be on the same page over all issues but we can always find a common ground. It is really unfortunate you played at a time when almost all your team mates lacked the fighting spirit. If you had played with the yekinis you would have enjoyed football better at national level. keep up the good work at the WBA.

    Peter
    I understand your frustrations and understand that you are not the first eagles
    player facing that issue and you won’t be the last. Yes, you play for a coach
    in the eagles team, but above all, you play for the millions of Nigerian
    football lovers and your fans across the globe. Leave the politics for the
    politicians and do your talking on the pitch like you have been doing for
    years. If you have an issue with any member of the NFF or the coach, attempt to
    sort it out maturely in private and using available access channels as you see
    fit. You won’t always get the feedback you desire, but that is life. Put the
    fans first and every other thing will almost naturally fall into place. The
    fact that every football coach and football federation wants to win
    substantiates this theory.

    thank u Peter, and I applaud u for clearing the air. Only the idiots, like Kingsley Joseph, Oghosomi Kingsley that commented on this blog,   will say bcos u are a professional u should keep silent even when pple are not saying the truth about you. I know u have naija and the fans at heart….unfortunately, our football authority is being managed by sycophants

    Why did the two Kingsley here thing with their tail not their head instead of you commending this guy for exposing what is wrong with our NFF you are here talking nonsense. Peter go on with your game if he doesn’t need you now another coach will do. This same asshole will be the one to appreciate you when will lost in the AFCON saying if Peter is part of the team maybe we would have gone far.

    What is wrong with What kingsely said. How many times have you heard Messi having problems with coaches, how many times does Messi argue with Coaches and Sport Federation on twitter.Osazie is destroying himself, he is an average good player that has not gone far yet, and he simply does not understand his place.This is the point. Osaze should grow up and stop all this rubbish.

  • Nelson okorodudu

    Nigerian football has been nose diving because the politicians in our glass house will not stop throwing stones at themselves and our committed footballers. Recently, Osaze has been one of the most committed footballers in the Eagles, and i think it is his passion for the game and his love of fatherland that has  made him resort to tweeter to express his feelings, is there any law prohibiting the freedom of expression especially when it affects your passion? I think both the glass house officials and Coach Stephen should act matured and not penalize a player because he expressed himself, no matter whose ox is gored, i think the country should come first before our personal interest and ego. Keshi since what u have is a provisional list,pl ease include Osaze in the main list cos he still remains one of our most loved and  committed players in the National team.

    what is happening to Nigeria premier league, we need to do something about it, plz advice Keshi to play friendly in Lagos before going to nation cup. IPAYE, Lagos

      IPAYE, please are you in anyway related to aunty Taiwo Ipaye (Former Miss Taiwo) that worked with Trans International Bank Ibadan? If your response is in the affirmative, please mail me on sakasina@yahoo.com

    why most Osaze quarrel with every coach ? he should check himself very well

  • topless

    Osaze does not have the discipline to play for Nigeria.He is arrogant and selfish  which makes him infit. In South Africa he was a big mess forgetting that soccer is a team game. Imagine how he is addressing Keshi.Can he address his coach at West Bronwich Albion like that? He will be thrown out immediately.Because Keshi is a Nigeria he tried to show that he is Benin thug.

    when a player have a problem with a coach,the management suposed to settle the issue not allowing the coach  putting him away with selection which may affect us even if we have anough. some players are stuborn by nature does not mean we should use our corruptive method of resolving issues.
