Super Eagles skipper Joseph Yobo has cautioned dissatisfied West Brom striker Osaze Odemwingie over his verbal tirade on coach Steven Keshi and ex-international Victor Ikpeba.
Odemwingie launched online attacks on the duo after he was left out of Nigeriaâ€™s provisional 32-man list for the 2013 Nations Cup.
Commenting on Brila FM programme Sports Machine on Friday, Yobo said Odemwingieâ€™s outburst was a distraction to the team, calling on him to respect the coach and the team.
â€˜â€™If suddenly everyone has now become your enemy, you must examine yourself in the front of a mirror,â€™â€™ he said, adding that Odemwingieâ€™s action justified Keshiâ€™s decision to leave him out.
â€˜â€™Osaze should respect Nigeria and stop embarrassing the country in the social media. He should approach football matters maturely and as a true Nigerian, he should support the team and pray for our success in South Africa.â€
Questioned about his future with the Eagles, Yobo said the 2013 Nations Cup would be his last as he would like to give an opportunity to younger players to develop.
