Odemwingie Upset About Omission

Peter Odemwingie has taken to Twitter to vent his frustration at missing out on a place in Nigeria's squad for the African Cup of Nations.

Odemwingie took to Twitter to say.

'Every manager has got his own plans and tactics - if I don't figure in your plans, please be honest to tell me directly. For 10 years I gave my all to the country as a player on the pitch, played for the nation and fans, not individuals. Because I speak out when things are not right, I guess some people are not just comfortable with that openness. If the chance to play for my country presents itself, then I will speak to my dad and those close to me - then we'll see.'

Nigeria's coach Keshie didn't seem to mind the rant.

'I don't even have a Facebook or Twitter account so it doesn't bother me at all. There's nothing personal about this stuff, Odemwingie is a very good player but right now I don't need him. He's a professional and he should be able to accept that.'

Quotes from Sky Sports.

It isn't all bad news and handbags though, Steve Clarke will reap the benefits of his omission as will Albion. Speaking to the Birmingham Mail Clarke responded.

'Peter made himself available, they didn't pick him. But he's delighted that he can stay here and play for us. I've spoken to him. It's the choice of the Nigeria coach and he respects that. He's disappointed but he can stay and help us.'
