Former Super Eagles coaches were involved in unethical selections – Odemwingie

Peter Odemwingie has explained how former Nigeria national team coaches were involved in unethical behaviour during his time at the Super Eagles.

Odemwingie made 63 appearances for the West Africans, scoring 10 goals during his 12-year career with the side, featuring in two World Cups and four Africa Cup of Nations competitions.

The former West Brom and Stoke City star claimed Shuaibu Amodu and a few ex-Super Eagles managers mixed their national teamwork with player management at the detriment of the country.

The revelation is coming days after Chinedu Obasi and Taye Taiwo made bribery allegations against former Nigeria coaches.

“Some of our coaches did get involved in a bit of player management, they had management companies,” Odemwingie told Super Eagles media team in an Instagram chat.

“Shuaibu Amodu, for instance, had a management company. Some picked a weaker player over a stronger one who played in a better club because they wanted to market their player.

“He was in and out as a coach and an agent, but he was a great man. I used to talk with him whenever I could about it. I loved Amodu.

“We used to fall out at times with him when they changed our hotels to a very poor one in Abuja.”
