Taye Taiwo

Former Nigerian international Taye Taiwo has accused former Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi for his early exit from the national team set-up because of his dirty dealings.

The former AC Milan defender managed just a single appearance under late Keshi, an Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match against Rwanda in February 2012, which was also the last of his 59 caps for Nigeria.

Taiye Taiwo made his Nigeria debut in 2004 and went on to play at the three AFCON tournaments and the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa during his eight-year international career, in which he scored five goals

He claimed he dumped the three-time African champions because he does not want to be associated with dirty glory under Keshi, who guided the West African country to their last Afcon triumph in 2013 and the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
