Super Eagles Coaches Select Players to Market Them - Odemwingie

Former Nigeria forward Peter Odemwingie has revealed that former handlers of the team were player managers.
Odemwingie, who scored 10 goals in 63 appearances for the Super Eagles, played in four Africa Cup of Nations tournaments and two FIFA World Cups.
The duo of Chinedu Obasi and Brown Ideye have recently revealed dirty dealings in the national team by officials.
Odemwingie states that the coaches preffered to use weaker players than quality stars during matches in his time with the Super Eagles.
“Some picked a weaker player over a stronger one who played in a better club because they wanted to market their player,”Osaze told the Super Eagles media team in an interview via Instagram Live.
“Some of our coaches did get involved in a bit of player management, they had management companies. Shuaibu Amodu for instance had a management company.

“He was in and out as a coach and an agent, but he was a great man. I used to talk with him whenever I could about it. I loved Amodu.
“We used to fall out at times with him when they changed our hotels to a very poor one in Abuja. I would raise questions because it was disgusting and downgrading.”
