Odemwingie hits rough spell

“There was a lot of shaking in 2012. Good games and bad games. Some unforgettable victories and also losses. To God be all the glory,” he submitted.
Odemwingie also took the time to reflect on his astonishing rants on two occasions that saw him took a swipe at several individuals including Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo and former African Footballer of the Year, Victor Ikpeba.
“I am the people's person and like interacting. But a request for New Year please don't provoke me too much haha,” he said.
The former La Louviere striker rounded off by thanking his fans who wished him well in the coming years and prayed that they enjoy the same.
"Thanks for the happy new year msgs. Wish you all the same," he wrote.
