Villarreal striker Ikechukwu Uche has denied the accusation that he demanded an apology from Stephen Keshi before he would agree to return to the Super Eagles.
Uche was dropped from the Nigeria squad to the Brazil 2014 World Cup by Keshi after the striker and the coach fell out.
But Keshi claimed he would have recalled the former Getafe star for the AFCON qualifiers against Congo and South Africa but for the player’s demands.
However, Uche has insisted he is always ready to play for his country without any conditions.
“It’s an honour to play for Nigeria,” Uche tweeted on Wednesday night. “I don’t expect to be begged or given special treatment. I’m available when/if considered for selection.”
The Eagles face Congo in Calabar on Saturday and South Africa in Cape Town next Sunday.
