Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel rejected the opportunity to be vice – captain of the Super Eagles before the position was handed to Eddy Onazi and Kenneth Omeruo.

Contrary to speculations that the midfielder would not honour future Super Eagles’ call – ups after he was overlooked for the captain’s armband by coach Sunday Oliseh, one of Mikel’s representatives has insisted that the player has taken the decision in good faith and is available for selection for the World Cup qualifiers.

“Sunday Oliseh wanted Mikel to be vice – captain, since he has already given Musa the captain’s armband,” the unnamed agent told allnigeriasoccer.com.

“He only wants to play in the team. He is not interested in being an a$$istant captain. Whenever they invite him, he will come.

“I think he was not chosen as captain because he missed the game in Tanzania, but Oliseh was impressed with his performance in the friendlies against DRC and Cameroon.”

IT IS AN INSULT FOR HIM TO BE ASSISTANT TO MUSA NAH.
WHO IS MUSA, IS IT COS OF BUHARI?

Oliseh is a sick and hungry fool who wants to use Musa to get close to Buhari. It is a shame that these fools did not invest their money wisely. Oliseh can't carry Mikel's jockstraps, hence He is filled with inferiority complex.

Am suspecting oliseh in this captain of a thing.

Maybe he has collected money from one Alhaji or he wants to favour Buhari by given musa the captain. Musas turn is still too far.
