Odemwingie upset over taunts from West Brom fans

Peter Odemwingie is unhappy with the way he's being treated by West Bromwich Albion fans.

The Nigerian was involved in an altercation with a fan during West Brom's 3-2 defeat to Wigan at The Hawthorns on Saturday. Odemwingie was berated by a fan while he spoke to his wife, Sarah, who was with their four-month-old son sat in the West Stand.

As he warmed up on the touchline he was also booed and there were clearly audible chants branding him a 'w*****' from a large section of supporters, says the Daily Mail.

It is understood the striker can understand the boos given his obvious desire to leave the club, but finds the name-calling unacceptable, especially with his family present. Clarke admitted after the game the crowd reaction prompted him to leave Odemwingie on the bench.
