Odemwingie says he paid for voicing outspoken opinions in Moscow.
"Albion are definitely a better team and it's all about the word 'team'. We play as a team," he said.
"Lokomotiv had a few talented players but a few years ago I foresaw the way it was going.
"They recruited a few players and I could see what was going to happen. They brought in a lot of individual players but we needed to mix them with team players.
"I said it was not going to work and they didn't like me for saying it. I never hid my opinions and I really paid for it.
"I'm learning but maybe too late. I'm planning to change."
