Ike Uche Hits Back At Keshi

Out-of-favour Super Eagles of Nigeria striker, Ikechukwu Uche has again denied Coach Stephen Keshi's claim that he recently refused to submit his passport for visa to South Africa.

Keshi disclosed on Wednesday that he dropped the Villarreal of Spain striker from his squad for last month’s African Cup Of Nations, AFCON qualifiers because he refused to cooperate with top team officials as regards getting a visa to South Africa.

But in his reaction, Uche took to his Twitter handle to clear the air on the issue.

"@ikeuche9: Important to clear the air. I never spoke to the Nigeria team secretary about SA visa or demand to have a word with the coach at any time."

He however wished the Eagles well. "@ikeuche9: We have important games against Sudan. It should be the focus of the players. I wish the team all the best in the Nations Cup qualifiers."

Keshi has refused to call up the striker and on Wednesday warned he will no longer entertain any more questions about the Villarreal star.
