Enstranged Super Eagles striker, Ikechukwu Uche has said that he was surprised by coach Stephen
Keshi’s declaration that he was an undisciplined player hence he was dropped from his list of players for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Uche has not played for the Eagles since the 2013 Nations Cup where he was used sparingly by coach Keshi. And despite being the highest scoring Nigeria striker in the European League, Keshi has turned his back on the Villarreal of Spain player. He said his reason for not including Uche in his plans was because the player was badly behaved and he rarely played to instructions.

“I do not know the reasons for these statements. Actually I am very surprised. It’s very sad for me, but I will not get into this issue,” Uche said.

Also his club president Fernando Roig said that Keshi was not very correct with the statement on Uche.

Roig defended the player’s character and questioned the rationale of Keshi’s statements about the player whose form has been instrumental to the Yellow Submarines’ positive run this season.

“I think the coach of Nigeria is not talking about the same Uche playing on our team,” the Villarreal President said.
