Injured Odemwingie responds to criticism

SETBACKS: Odemwingie

WEST BROMWICH Albion striker Peter Odemwingie responded to claims by his manager Roy Hodgson that he was possibly feigning injury by posting a picture of his swollen knee on Twitter.

Hodgson had said earlier this week that he has got “nothing” out of the 30-year-old this season and that Odemwingie was “difficult to work with”.

The Nigerian international responded by posting a picture on his Twitter page with the caption ‘Fingerprints to show an edema (accumulation of fluid) still present after 3 & a half weeks’ to prove his injury.

PROOF: The forward’s submits a picture of his damaged knee

Speaking to BBC Sport about the situation with Hodgson, Odemwingie, who scored 15 goals last season but has missed the majority of this season through injury, said:

"People have said and done things out of frustration - it has happened to me before.

"But talking won't solve the problem. I want to be fit and do my talking on the pitch.

"Mentally it's been tough, I've pushed myself too hard physically and I'm frustrated.

"If only I could wish them all away but injuries are part of football."
