Peter Odemwingie criticises West Brom over lack of starts

Latest Gist

West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie has taken to Twitter to criticise the club for not starting him.

The 31-year-old has made made just four substitute appearances and not started a game for the Baggies since almost moving to QPR on transfer deadline day.
Odemwingie arrived at Loftus Road on 31 January and apparently tried to open talks without West Brom's permission.
"Keeping me on the bench now is worst [sic] than what they did on the 31st," the Nigeria international tweeted. 

Odemwingie later added: "If they like they shouldn't even give me 10 mins to play. Threatening to ruin my career? Career I closed already last summer? No harm to me.
"Want to treat me like an average player. The abuse and praise I get is it average? So get some extra from me too."
Odemwingie reported to training the day after his unauthorised trip to west London, but was told to return the following week and was subsequently fined two weeks' wages.
In February, manager Steve Clarke insisted the forward still had a part to play this season.
But Odemwingie has been used as a second-half sub on four occasions since the controversial incident including an appearance in the 68th minute in the goalless draw at Stoke on Saturday.
Odemwingie, who has scored five Premier League goals this season, has another season left on his contract after the end of the present campaign.
