Former West Brom and Stoke City forward, Peter Odemwingie has slammed the British media for their obvious lack of interest in the truth but sensational stories that will go viral.
In a telephone chat with former Super Eagles teammate, Ifeanyi Udeze on Sports Radio, 88.9 Brila FM, Odemwingie said he drove to QPR because he was told to come as the deal as been sorted.
‘Everything was agreed, but actually I didn’t know that one of the terms was that they [West Brom] were getting [Junior] Hoilett and [if I had known that] I would have never driven to London,” Odemwingie said.
‘Even Harry Redknapp the then QPR Manager said on Radio sometimes last year that they told me to come, he made the confession. However, you know the mainstream media don’t care about the truth,’ Osaze said.
‘They [media] only want sensation, ‘A guy turned up at the stadium, trying to force a move, look at this’ Wow, wow!
‘If you give them the truth, they believe no one is interested in it since it’s not sensational stuff, and that is the world we live in today, there is politics about everything we see today.
“The truth is not what everyone is interested in, the story was all over the place because it was sensational, it made me more popular in some way and I decided to pick positives out of the situation,” He said.
