The former Inter Milan and Newcastle United player has lifted the lid, saying he was forced to make this decision because he does not have a good relationship with his teammates in the Super Eagles setup.
“No, I am done with my national team, I will not go there any more. I do not have good relationships with some companions, ” Obafemi Martins said in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“If they do not want me anymore, patience. I love my country, I have given so much. But there are problems and although I am called up, I do not go.”
Obafemi Martins scored 18 goals for the Super Eagles internationally, and has not been officially summoned to the national team for the past 21 months.
