Odemwingie apologises to West Brom
Nigeria forward, Peter Odemwingie has finally made an apology to West Bromwich Albion and the club's supporters for his recent decisions.
Odemwingie has also accepted the club's unspecified sanction for his Twitter attacks on Albion fans as well as trying to force a deadline-day transfer to QPR.
"I understand how my actions have been viewed and want to apologise to the club and our supporters for any distress I have caused.
"I want to reassure everyone at the club and our fans that I will continue to give my all whenever I am selected. We have enjoyed a good season so far and I aim to play my part in keeping the club as high up the table as possible," said the Nigerian striker.
West Brom and Odemwingie as well as his representatives held talks this week to thrash out the future of the striker after it emerged that npower Championship club, Crystal Palace were willing to sign him.
After discussions, all parties accepted to bury their differences after a heated past few weeks.
"This has been an extremely difficult time for the club and it was imperative that we dealt with such a serious matter both fully and correctly. We have made our position very clear throughout – both privately to Peter and publicly.
"Peter has apologised for his conduct to me personally and the club and our supporters as a whole. He has accepted his punishment and promised to comply with all club regulations moving forward.
"It was important that we resolved this episode as expediently as possible to enable everyone to focus on the most important issue at this club – competing in the Premier League," Albion's chairman, Jeremy Peace, was quoted by The Guardian in the UK as saying.
West Brom will face Liverpool at Anfield this weekend and Odemwingie is now expected to join up with the club's first-team and could be available for selection again.
