Odemwingie Frowns At Being Misquoted By Madura United President Qosasi‏

BY GODWIN AIKIGBE

Former Madura United striker Peter Osaze Odemwingie has urged Mandura United president Achsanul Qosasi‏ to stop misquoting him in the Indonesian press after falling with their management.

The former Nigeria international in a long statement on twitter regretted the team’s failure to win the Indonesia Liga 1 title, but added that their 6th-place finish with only six points separating them from winners Bhayangkara was not too bad.

His tweets on Monday reads:

“Mr @AchsanulQosasi can you please not quote me in the press ? Especially things I never said. Thank you 🙏🏽,” the Tashkent-born replied to an earlier tweet by Madura United president.

The 36-year-old scored 15 goals in 23 appearances for Madura, and was conspicuously missing when the team were annihilated 6-1 by PSM in Sunday’s last day’s fixture at Stadion Andi Mattalatta  in Makassar.

He joined the club from Championship side Rotherham 5 March and had played for a string of clubs including Lille, West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City, Bendel Insurance, La Louvière, Lokomotiv Moscow, Cardiff City and Bristol City.
