WestBromwich Albion has fined Nigerian striker, Peter Odemwingie for his latest Twitter rant directed at the club, where he insinuated that West Brom are trying to ruin his career.
Odemwingie tried to force a move to Queen Park Rangers during the January transfer window, but it became apparent to the player only in the last hours of the January window that the club was not going to let him go despite his Twitter outburst, as he was turned back at the QPR gate when he was told the Baggies have not granted him permission to discuss with QPR. He was fined and seemed to be settling back in until his latest Twitter rant.
The latest outburst could have gotten Odemwingie sacked but the club will not be going that way though it is now almost sure that he will be sold in the summer with one year left on his contract–the player may finally be getting his wish.
Odemwingie tweeted: “If they like they shouldn’t even give me 10 mins to play. Threatening to ruin my career? Career I closed already last summer? No harm to me.
“Want to treat me like an average player. The abuse and praise I get is it average? So get some extra from me too.”
West Brom issued a statement which read: “The club is aware of comments made by Peter Odemwingie which will be dealt with internally.”
He has also been involved in a fierce clash with Steven Reid in the medical room at the club’s training ground.
