Osaze Odemwingie is really angry.
Nigeria’s controversial footballer, Osaze Odemwingie, on Sunday reportedly called the Chairman of the Technical Committee of the Nigeria Football Association, NFF, Chris Green, an “idiot.”
Osaze who has been in the limelight since his exclusion from the list of players representing Nigeria at the 2013 African Cup of Nations Squad, AFCON, in South Africa, was irritated to have found out that his name was omitted from the players list from the media.
Osaze had taken to twitter on Sunday to vent his anger at his exclusion from the AFCON squad.
Somewhere in between the twitter rants, Osaze got a call from Mr. Green who tried to douse the former’s anger.
But Mr. Green got a shocker.
The NFF Technical Committee Chairman told PREMIUM TIMES that Osaze insulted him over the phone.
“Green, for 10 good years I have stood to sing the national anthem for Nigeria, you (Green) and Keshi removed my name from the list right; in short don’t ever call my line again, Idiot!” Mr. Green quoted Osaze as saying.
In one of his now famous Sunday tweets, Osaze hinted at his conversation with Mr. Green.
