    You’re a true man for using yourself as a sacrifice to other players who are scared to speak out.

    Mikel is a very discipline and smart guy.
    Only the smart ones can relate to the reward of his action..

    Mikel is 100% on point in this decision. Life and family is more important. The Turkish FA are indeed being foolish and reckless. The rest of the world is on lockdown, but they are carrying on as if there is no problem. They better wake up from their slumber! Dead body no dey play football.
