Former West Brom of England and Super Eagles of Nigeria winger Osaze Odemwingie has opened up on the health status of the late legendary Nigerian coach Stephen Keshi during the Brazil 2014 World Cup


Keshi won the Africa Cup of Nations as player and coach with the Super Eagles.

He reportedly passed away on June 7, 2016.

This came after an heart attack at his home in Benin City, Nigeria.

Odemwingie and Keshi had issues after the Edo striker was dropped from the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations and squad.

It was later settled before the tournament in Brazil World Cup.

Odemwingie said in an Instagram Live  conversation with the Super Eagles Media Team.

"It's not to prove who is boss, who is not. It's national interest and I believe I brought some value to the team in Brazil, we put those differences aside,"

"And actually after that we were in touch, he'll give me a call out of the blue, he'll just call to say hello and say he heard about my injury and then checked on me when I had surgery."

 "Of course it shocked me as well he passed away but you could see his health wasn't great even in Brazil. He was out of breath a lot, he needed to take breaks, he wasn't so much full of energy on the sidelines.

"Sometimes he stands up to pass some messages, he wasn't looking full of energy then, unfortunately.

"He's a legend in the country, he's done a great job, put any sentiment aside he got the job done and that's what counts a lot in sports."
