    Mikel should be made to come out of retirement and play for the SE. The midfield clearly needs his services. He should be deployed to play as the deep lying midfielder who ochestrates play from deep,not in an advanced midfield role he was handed in the last Afcon and which he flopped. Iwobi needs somebody like him that ochestrates play from deep to thrive better.

    You mean Ndidi Mikel iwobi will be more balanced midfield, i think you are right as mikel can dictates from deep, but with the arival of ejiara and josh unoma i think we may not need mikel.
