Striker bashes Baggies

Stoke City 0 West Brom 0
Peter Odemwingie has launched a fresh Twitter attack on West Brom after being consigned to the substitutes’ bench since his failed bid to leave The Hawthorns in January.

Odemwingie, who came on as a second-half substitute in Saturday’s 0-0 draw at Stoke, delivered a series of Twitter rants against the club after having a transfer request rejected at the start of the year, and he has once again vented his frustration after being omitted from the Baggies’ starting line-up for the last four games.

He tweeted yesterday: “Keeping me on the bench now is worst than what they did on the 31st. New advisers told me to take say its all my fault cos its better or me

“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”
