Nigeria: Odemwingie Slams Ikpeba On Twitter Again

Out of favour Super Eagles forward, Osaze Odemwingie appears not done yet with his war of word with anyone he perceives as supporting Stephen Keshi's dropping him from the 2013 Africa Cup of Nation preliminary list.

After rubbishing Keshi and the Nigeria Football Federation chiefs in some of his earlier posts on social media, Twitter, the West Bromwich Albion player again took to Twitter Thursday to also launch tirade on 1997 African Footballer of the Year, Victor Nosa Ikpeba, amongst others.

Following Ikpeba's remarks on Monday Night Football show on SuperSport that he would only reply Odemwingie's tweets when the forward achieves what he (Ikpeba) has achieved in the game, Odemwingie went full blast unrestrained on Twitter.

"My reply to you (Victor) Ikpeba. Prince of Monaco? You're not a prince, but rather a princess. You do not pull. So, let's goodbye," he tweeted.

Odemwingie also criticised Ikpeba for the part he allegedly played in Nigeria's failure to qualify for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

"Ok Victor e don reach ur turn - talking about professionalism huh - did u have any business in the dressing room during game against guinee?

"You said I can talk face 2 face with u only when I achieve what you achieved? No be so senior. Treat ur little bros like family not oga.

"Your handshake could have been back (bad) luck to me cos you have prejudged opinion about me. Coach and his team only in dressing room please.

"If u had coaching talent u would at least be one by now. That means you don't know much about the game. Means don't be a adviser to FF.

"That he was playing for himself 2 much. Jay jay future only in the semi final of that Nations Cup. Was Big Boss the coach? Which boss self.

"People read between the lines as well. U 'll understand the big picture. Oliseh said Siasia was the one they send to rattle officials hahaa.

"I've gone off track. Back to u bros. I wanted to play this cup for our fans and not you guys. Cos u guys change like chameleons when suits you," he tweeted.

Ikpeba could not be reached last night for his comments on Odemwingie's latest outburst.
