The reason behind the demotion of Super Eagles of Nigeria striker Brown Ideye to the Reserve team of Chinese side Tianjin Teda has been revealed to Owngoalnigeria.com.
Ideye moved to the team in February from Greek side Olympiakos, and immediately broke into the first team but he lost his spot in the team after a poor run of form and had to be contented with a new role as a substitute.
Reports gathered by our correspondent gathered he didn’t take the bench role lightly and his reaction sparked a war of words with coach of the team, who reported to the management, hence his demotion to the Reserves.
His name has since been wiped off from the list of first team players on the website of the team with new signing Frank Acheampong taking his spot as a foreign player in the first team of the team.
28 year old Ideye has found the back of the net 4 times in 14 games for Tianjin Teda, but it appears he has played his last game for the team and a move away from the team in December looks imminent according to sources close to the player.
