 Osaze Odemwingie

West Brom have banished Osaze Odemwingie from training and was ordered to return home after the striker turned up for training on Friday morning.

He was sent home by head coach Steve Clarke 'to clear his head' and is expected to be called back next week during the international break, reports


Odemwingie accused the club of reneging on a gentlemen's agreement and claimed that when he signed for West Brom from Lokomotiv Moscow it was done in a 'wholly unprofessional' way.

He said that Albion had not received permission from Moscow but that 'these things don't matter so much when adults are dealing with each other'.

The meeting

The Nigerian striker had a meeting with technical director Dan Ashworth before he left the Midlands and he believed in the meeting his departure had been sanctioned.

Odemwingie said goodbye to team-mates at The Hawthorns and drove to London in the belief his move would be resolved as the deadline loomed.

“I’ve learned now that the role of technical director is not superior to a chairman. When you are in England, you are gentlemen and you have to understand each other.

“After talks there was no need for training. I said I can go now, I got the go ahead from what I understand,” the striker stated.
