    I don’t think you deserve to be playing for Nigeria. The Turkey Club may soon realize that they made a big mistakes for hiring Mikel Obi at this time. Mikel coming to play for Nigeria was a bad idea. He is just faking it now. It is time to call it quit and return to your loving family in London.
    Obi was said to have been responsible for the painful lose to Madagascar match yesterday.

    When did Mikel snap this picture? I hope its not during the afcon that he had time to be negotiating contract. If this pic was snapped during afcon then i wont be surprised at his poor performance cos contract negotiations take time and energy and it can easily distract a player from putting his best during a tournament.

      That photo was most probably shot in a hotel room. Look at the setting, it is quite different from What we usually see in other ‘sign on’ photo shoots.

      I wonder why you are the first to raise our attention to it. Mikel’s mind was in Turkey while his body was in Egypt during that game.
