Super Eagles:Yobo Again with Keshi over Kenya's game

Fresh crisis seems to be brewing in the camp of Nigeria’s national team as Super Eagles skipper, Joseph Yobo, has come out openly to condemn Coach Stephen Keshi for failing to inform him before leaving him out of the team that played against Kenya’s Harambee Stars in a World Cup qualifying match on March 23 in Calabar.
Yobo in an interview with sports radio, Brila FM yesterday morning insisted that Coach Keshi was disrespectful for not giving him any prior notice before his non-invitation for last month’s 2014 FIFA W/Cup qualifier against Kenya.
The Super Eagles captain, who is four appearances short of making a century of appearances for the national team, said he should have been told before the list was made available to the public.
This statement rhymes with the same complaint made by Osaze Odemwingie on the eve of the Nations Cup from which the West Brom striker was excluded.
“I’m disappointed nobody called me before the team list (vs Kenya) was announced. It’s disrespectful. I feel disrespected.
The Fenerbahce of Turkey defender continued: “I am the captain of the Super Eagles; I thought the coach should have put a call across to me. I have no problem being left out,” the 12-year veteran of the national team added.
The Super Eagles escaped with a 1-1 draw in the World Cup qualifying match after a last minute gasp effort from Italy-based Nnamadi Oduamadi saved Nigeria from an embarrassing defeat at home.
who is to blamed?
