Too Many ‘Dirty Deals’ Under Keshi! Taye Taiwo Reveals His Ouster From Super Eagles Too

Dirty Deals Under Keshi Taye Taiwo
Taye Taiwo’s last outing for the Super Eagles of Nigeria was in February 2012, and he has revealed reasons behind his early exit from the national team.

The 35-year-old has accused former Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi for his exit following his dirty dealings.

Taiwo made just one appearance under late Keshi, an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Rwanda in February 2012, which was also the last of his 59 caps for the three-time African champions.

The former AC Milan defender claimed he dumped the Super Eagles because he does not want to be associated with dirty glory under Keshi.

“I am someone who doesn’t want dirty glory and in my life, I have never been involved in what is not clean and that was why I packed my bags and left the Super Eagles,” Taiwo was quoted by Legit.

”I cannot work or stay where I see that is dirty because I am serving a clean God, and if I am in an area that is not clean, I will have to leave the place.

”When they appointed Stephen Keshi as coach, he was acting somehow in which I told myself that it was time for me to leave the Super Eagles.

”I packed my bags and I told my wife and family that I cannot be involved in dirty deals.”

Taiwo’s statement comes in the wake of the latest controversy rocking the West African country after former Schalke 04 star Chinedu Obasi revealed he was dropped from Keshi’s team for the 2014 World Cup for ‘refusing’ to pay a bribe.

Meanwhile, Keshi’s assistants Daniel Amokachi has reacted to Obasi’s claim.
 “Why come forward with such now when the man in charge is no longer alive to answer it?” Amokachi said.

“Even look at it, this happened in 2014 and six years after you are coming forward with such claims?

“Why wait until now? It doesn’t make sense to bring such an issue when the head is no longer alive to respond to you?” Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
