'Cheer team if not Odemwingie,' says West Brom manager
Thursday 21 February 2013
Steve Clarke has urged West Bromwich Albion supporters not to let their feelings towards striker Peter Odemwingie affect their backing for the team in Saturday's home game with Sunderland.
Clarke confirmed Odemwingie is part of his plans to face Sunderland after his Twitter rants against the club and the bitter on-off transfer saga with Queen's Park Rangers last month. The head coach said: "If Peter scores a hat-trick and they choose not to celebrate Peter's goals, they should celebrate the fact that the team have scored."
