Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how former Super Eagles defender Taiye Taiwo pointed an accusing finger on late Super Eagles coach Stephen Keshi claiming that his dirty deals forced him out of the Super Eagles.
Taiye Taiwo is one of the best left full backs who have played for the Super Eagles considering his speed, shots and high goal scoring sense when he was wearing green and white jersey.
The former AC Milan defender played 53 games for the Super Eagles scoring five goals before he stopped playing for the Nigerian national senior men's team.
