"Odemwingie Should Bring Corruption Evidence or Wait for My Lawyer"- Former Super Eagles Coach

By Olamide Oyetunji - Former manager of the Super Eagles Samson Siasia has asked Peter Osaze Odemwingie to provide evidence for his alleged mischievous act at the 2008 Olympic Games held in Beijing city of China or be ready to face him in the court of law.
Peter Odemwingie who was the only over-aged player in the Nigerian Under-23 Dream Team to the football event of the summer games in Beijing had alleged as a guest on the Super Eagles Instagram Live Page few days ago that he had some issues with the 1994 FIFA World Cup legend because he refused to dance to his tunes as the Coach at the heir of affairs of the Super Eagles.
He also claimed that some of the malpractices that were gossipped in camp were responsible for the issues currently facing the gaffer at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) which led to the life ban by the Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) on the ground of match fixing.
“During the Olympic Games in Beijing, there were some rumours among the players because I did not play the qualifiers, that some dodgy things were going on, part of which he (Siasia) is being accused of at the moment" Odemwingie alleged during the Instagram chat.
“I did not know the validity of it but there were talks of match-fixing. For us the players we played out our hearts and deservedly got to the final which everyone saw,” Osaze stated in the chat.

In his proactive reaction to Odemwingie’s claims, the Olympics games silver and bronze medal winning tactician is demanding for proof of the allegations from the former Stoke City striker or he should wait for court summons from his lawyers.
“I am alive (to reply him). Osaze should better show me evidence of his allegations or shut up his mouth. The next letter will come from my lawyer, not me exchanging words with him,” Siasia told THISDAY on thursday.
Siasia’s reference to being alive in the reply was not to Odemwingie alone but to others whom have laid similar allegations due to the inability of Late Coaches like Shuaibu Amodu and Stephen Keshi to defend themselves.
Recall that Chinedu Ogbuke Obasi, Michael Eneramo, Nosa Igiebor, Brown Ideye and Taye Taiwo were all in the news recently with some revelations about the selections made by Super Eagles coaches prior to Nigeria’s participation at the 2010 and 2014 World Cup in South Africa and Brazil respectively.
