Following the revelation , the former Olympiacos of Greece star has promised to one day write a book to tell his own side of the story.
“Before I retire, I will write a book and pour everything out,” he said in an Instagram chat with sports journalist Oma Akatugba.
“We all know that there is a lot of corruption in our football. But, there is a limit you can go when it comes to corruption and bribery.
“So many things didn’t add up at the time. I was asking myself if I did something wrong or there was something I didn’t do. Not going to that World Cup, God used Keshi to sideline me for the West Bromich Albion job.
“I haven’t told anyone what really transpired, only my spouse knows about the story. It was painful, I felt like saying something but I decided to get hold of myself.”
