Why I dropped Osaze, Taiwo–Keshi


Poor attitude has cost top stars, Osaze Odemwingie and Taye Taiwo a chance to fight for places in the Eagles’ squad to 2013 AFCON in South Africa. MTNFootball.com learnt that Keshi defended his decision to drop Odemwingie and Taiwo by citing the players’ attitudes with particular reference to the Nations Cup qualifier in February in Rwanda.

West Brom star striker, Odemwingie, was pulled off the game because of his under performance, while Taiwo posted a stinker at the Eagles’ lackluster goalless draw in Kigali. Both players took exceptions to being hauled off the pitch and Odemwingie admitted this in a recent radio interview. “Osaze confronted Keshi and told him that it was an insult for him to be so substituted as a senior player,” the MTN’s website reported. “We all know that Osaze has big mouth and his attitude under other national team coaches has not been exemplary.

He has stood up against former Eagles’ coaches like Austin Eguavoen, Lars Lagerback and Samson Siasia. “Taiwo, on his part, threw caution to the wind after a very poor game in Kigali with a tirade aimed at the coaches and the entire team.” Keshi, it was learnt, has forgiven both players after they showed remorse leading up to the 2013 AFCON, but he has insisted that he would prefer to be in South Africa without them. ‘The Big Boss’ wants to be in full control of his dressing room at all times.

Ukraine-based Taiwo has begged for a second chance in his telephone conversion with Keshi and lately, he tried to put more pressure on the coach by taking his case to the people’s court via the media.

  2. The coach should remain in control of his team. Osaze and Taiwo are no longer good enough for the national team. Osaze for instance has scored more goals for West Brom in one year than he has scored for the Eagles in all his outings.

  3. Keshi should be left to do his job. I’m pretty sure that this is one of the problem with the so called Super Eagles. And if Keshi has to call them to order, so be it. There should be discipline in the team. The super eagles has been politicised in recent times in such a way that those boys that play abroad would want to do whatever they like and this is what lead to poor performance in their outings.
    Keshi is doing a good job. This will make the players to sit up.
    Thank you.

  4. Keshi hate a stubborn player, whereas he was the most stubborn when he was playing for Nigeria. He was called the Big boss because he was detecting for the coach Clement Westerhorf

  5. I think the coach “Keshi” knows what is good and bad, he is not a quark coach neither. Therefore, any player who is not capable of performing excellent in 2013 AFCON should better be drop before the time to aviod any blaim on somebody. Because, the earlier the hand of monkey is remove from the soup is better before it becomes a human hand. Coach Keshi, well done job.

  6. I think Osaze is in good form now, I think the coach would have mend his differences with him. I wish him well but one thing is certain, if he perform below expectation the same people that is praising him now will turn back and condemn him for implementing the BIG BOSS syndrome in the national team. A WORD IS ENOUGH FOR THE WISE. Good luck.

  7. Igbo adage said when u beat a child with right hand u draw him/her back with left hand. So what am I saying is Keshi should have call them back after punishing them,after all Keshi was more than stubborn during he’s playing days he was the one that started Mafianism in super Eagles then,so he should treat these lads with kindness. Osaze has what it take to be in the super Eagles now

  8. the holy bible told us that if one of your fingers will cause you to sin against God, it is better that you caught it off for it is better for you to be in the kingdom of God without one finger than the whole of your body being in hell fire.

    I dont believe in how long you have played for the country or how good you are. I believe in professional discipline and it is better to fight a war with loyal troops.

    None of our players earn more than C Ronaldo, Messi, and co. yet they dont go to media to insult their coaches.

    It is the piper that dictates the dance tune.
    I uphold keshi’s decision.

    DISCIPLINE has cost us AFCON cup for years now.
    It caused Ghana the same problem during the time of Abedi Pele and co before they took drastic action by abandoning all their old professional players for younger, discipline and dedicated players who made a record in their world cup appearance in 2010 at south africa.
