As if to justify Coach Stephen Keshi’s decision to leave him out of his squad over alleged bad attitude, striker Osaze Odemwingie has refused to take his exclusion in good fate.
Two days ago, Keshi had left “big boys” Osaze, Taye Taiwo and Obafemi Martins out of his preliminary 32-man squad for the championship holding Jan. 19 to Feb. 10 in South Africa. While others seem to have taken the decision in good fate, Osaze, who plies his trade with English Premiership side West Brom, ranted on Twitter today, betraying his frustration over the turn of events. Below are some of his posts, which also dig up issues of the past when he had problems with some of Keshi’s predecessors:
>>They can’t spoil my name!!!
>>That’s when I ask my self - do we not have a team captain and federation who can tell its common sense? And settle the matter? Na wow oh
>>Then they don't invite Enyama our number one for a crucial qualifying game cos he complained about a flight or something little? Ridiculous
>>Then SWAN sends a letter to NFF to warn me. (Sorry about that tweet didn't mean it that way). But tell ur colleagues not to make up stories
>>The story is getting long and I don tire. I cared a lot about the team and wasn't passive.
>>This might sound disrespectful but eagles had no good captain for many years. Everyone looking only after himself.
>>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.
>>After Afcon in Ghana eagles fans were satisfied with our performance and Siasia after the tournament said I will take u 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.
>>I had to holla at him and Amokachi his assistant and next games I played and man of the match in half games of the team that year.
>>Whatin I do them self? Hahahaha.
>>Nff member just called me. Ofcos 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.
>>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.
