Seattle Sounders star striker, Obafemi Martins, has said out-of-contact Nigeria coach, Stephen Keshi, has overlooked him because he does not like him.

“I don’t think he likes me, that’s all,” quoted Martins as saying on Monday.

“I don’t have any issues with him. I respect him as a coach, but I think Keshi doesn’t like me.”

The former Inter Milan and Birmingham City striker, who scored 17 goals Seattle Sounders, was one of three nominees for MLS Most Valuable Player for 2014 and helped lead the Sounders to its most successful MLS season yet.

But despite Martins ’recent exploits, Keshi preferred to work with several other strikers of lower standard.
