Nigerian striker, Peter Osaze Odewingie has reacted to his exclusion from the team to play the Nations Cup in South Africa come January 2013. It was a big shock for football lovers when the West Brom striker was excluded from the team because many had thought his misunderstanding with the head coach, Stephen Keshi had been resolved.
The former Bendel Insurance player went on twitter to blast the head coach who he said had no footballing reasons to exclude him from the squad to play in the competition.
He also tweeted that his quarrel with Siasia started when he fumed at the football federation selling kits at the Olympics when there were no enough for the team to use.
His series of unedited tweets read;
"On my not inclusion to the eagles list i am not surprised. Not surprised Keshi and NFF couldn't tell me themselves. No personality! Keshi has no footballing reasons not to invite me but is not saying the truth. He s still in my plans he said haha coach u no dey my plans.
"Nff spokesman told MTN he is arrogant? I am arrogant? Why did countries president threaten to close down our federation for two years? Why didn't Lagerback continue with supereagles after world cup ? Chop and run was his plan and they knew it.
"Nigerian fans voted me nigerian player of the year during world cup qualifiers & I was a spectator in the world cup and I should be quiet? Cos after we got olympic silver I didn't say Siasia is ready for eagles he waited till he gets the job to axe me ?
"Me and Apam begged him to take Kaita in the olympic team.He told us he wants to play Efe Ambrose there who is a centre back ? Good plan. The only reason me and Siasia fell out was over kits that were not enough cos they were on sale as the olympics were on going. Shame !
"Ok that childish thing about shirt aside. WBA needed me back 4 important game and Siasia refused to let me miss a midweek friendly game? Were is common sense there ? The game was played in a 80000 capacity stadium with 2000 spectators. That's how important the game was !
"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.
"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. Nff member just called me. Ofcos got insulted. I told him I sang national anthem for ten years to be treated like this. Whatin I do them self ? Hahahaha."
