West Bromwich Albion have revealed that their Nigerian striker Osaze Odemwingie will face sanctions when he returns today, following his outburst on Twitter over the weekend.

The 31-year-old vented out his frustrations on the micro-blogging platform after his transfer request was rejected by the club.

Odemwingie who was given some time-off to attend to his wife and their new-born baby is expected to have joined up with his teammates this morning, and sporting director of the club Richard Garlick has disclosed that the club is unimpressed with the players' attitude and he will face possible sanctions.

"QPR have made a second, improved offer for Peter, which we have turned down. As we have repeatedly stated, we have no need or desire to sell our core players.

"Since we turned down Peter's transfer request, he has made his position clear in a statement to the media and via his personal Twitter account,” Garlick noted.

"This matter will be dealt with internally." he assured.

But all this stupid South Africa should go to their own kick off to make comment on their own BANANA BANANA Teams and they should leave us alone or what is their problem with Nigeria self? When we said that South Africa is jealous of Nigeria they will said no, so what you people are doing now to always interupt on Nigeria issues. Anyway we are your father forever. Continue your jealous of us.

1 thing i don't like about this guy, he thinks he is the best, he was whining about his exclusion from Nigerian national team. I think there are better players in Nigeria than him, he is very good in tweeter.

The attacks on South Africans and Nigerians should stop. This is a Football website. Of course there is nothing wrong with banter but some of you are taking it personal.

Odemwingie is just stubborn. Where are all the people that were defending him when he went on a rant about Nigeria? Come and defend your bighead player.He thinks he is a superstar, he is not even a star in Africa talkless of the world. He should shut his mouth.

At least Nigeria qualified to this tournament purely on merit ...unlike south africa who FAILED to qualify. Only in it as a host. How sad is that!

Osaz is not the only 9ja player that his club refused to let go on transfer, J Utaka was deprived the move too. I think its all about attitude, some people can control their emotions while some cant. Osaze remains one of us and still got my respect any day. GO 4 ANGER MANAGEMENT Osaze!

@ Pirate from Orlando, I am a Nigerian but I support ur comment. Osaze needs to leave twitter blog alone and focus on his games. It appears he twitts about every single thing that happens in his club/national team. This is his 3rd time of getting into trouble via twitting. He should just grow up!
