Keshi rules IK Uche out of his world cup team



Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi has closed the door on striker
Ikechukwu Uche for the World Cup, saying he lacks tactical
Uche has been one of Nigeria’s reliable goal scorers and has scored
12 goals this season for Villarreal.
On Monday night, the striker returned to action after he was
sidelined by injury for two weeks.
He last featured for Nigeria in the final of the 2013 Africa Cup of
Nations against Burkina Faso.
Keshi speaking to from his base in the United
States said, “Ikechukwu Uche is not a player I have not seen play.
Ike Uche problem is not knowing how to play football.
“His problem is that he wants to dictate how we play in Super
Eagles, he wants to tell us the system we’re playing is not good.
“Uche he has a very bad habit, that if you put him in the game he is
not playing to instructions and he did that in the final of AFCON
against Burkina Faso, he almost cost us.
“Again he did that against Zambia, in the second match when (Efe)
Ambrose was given a red card. What we told him to do, he was
doing the opposite.”
Keshi added: “And if you don’t respect your team mates and you
don’t respect the team, then there is no point. I know he cannot do
that in his club, then why do it in the national team?
“I don’t think I need a player like that in the team.”
