thumbnail Hello,

The Nigerian international has now been fined over £170,000 for various outbursts on a social media site

Nigerian striker, Peter Odemwingie has been punished with another fine for his latest Twitter where he insinuated that West Brom are trying to ruin his career.

The latest outburst could have gotten Odemwingie sacked but the club will not be going that way though it is now almost sure that he will be sold in the summer with one year left on his contract.

He said on Twitter: “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.”

The 31-year-old had ridden to Queens Park Rangers during January's transfer deadline to push through a transfer but he was snubbed at the gate and fined £75,000 for a Twitter outburst afterwards.

West Brom issued a statement which read: “The club is aware of comments made by Peter Odemwingie which will be dealt with internally.”

He has also been involved in a fierce clash with Steven Reid in the medical room at the club’s training ground.

Odemwingie was signed for £2 million from Lokomotiv Moscow in August 2010 and has played just 22 times in the league this season with five goals. Though he scored 10 and 15 goals in the last two seasons to emerge as the Baggies’ highest goals scorer.
