Nigeria inter­national and Chelsea of England mid­fielder, John Obi Mikel, is now a British citizen.




The Super Eagles’ A-list player had waited patiently since he applied for the prestigious British passport last year and was delighted to get a positive feedback from the relevant authori­ties last week.

Mike became eligible for citizenship, having spent more than eight years in England following his transfer to Chelsea from Lyn Oslo of Norway in 2006.

Before the commence­ment of the current English Premier League season, speculations were rife that Chelsea’s manager, Jose Mourinho, wanted to sacri­fice him to free up a foreign quota spot, but this is now a thing of the past.

‘’Mikel was issued a Brit­ish passport last week, and he is very happy to be in the possession of the passport,’’ a representative of the Super Eagles’ star revealed.

‘’That’s very good news because he will no longer be counted as a foreign player in the Chelsea squad.

‘’All the obstacles that would have prevented him playing in Europe have been eliminated, especially in Italy.

‘’Mikel is not leaving Chelsea in the January transfer window. He will only think about his future at the end of this season,’’ the representative added.

"Prestigious British passport!"

I wonder when the Nigerian passport will be described in such glowing terms?

THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK NIGERIAN PASSPORT IS VALUABLE SHOULD TRY GOING ABROAD AND LIVE FOR AT LEAST A YEAR, THEY YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THAT THE PASSPORT YOU CARRY DETERMINES THE KINDS OF JOBS YOU GET, THE KINDS OF NEIGHBORHOODS YOU ARE ALLOWED TO BUY APARTMENTS ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE A MIDDLE CLASS INCOME EARNER. AS A NIGERIAN ABROAD, YOU ARE FIRST CONSIDERED A CRIMINAL UNTIL PROVEN OTHERWISE BECAUSE OF THE ANTECEDENTS OF OUR IGBO BROTHERS. MICKEL HAS FOUND A WAY TO GIVE HIMSELF AND HIS FAMILY A GOOD LIFE, YOU SHOULD TOO, BE IT IN NIGERIA OR ELSEWHERE.

i wonder why you people are congratulating him ? if it was to be some other country they will ban him from playing for his national team, i watched his interview the other day and he was trying to speak with an accent ? When will Nigerians be Original ? Russians live in America for years and even German's or Italians but you only know  them when they speak English because they are original to their mother tongue, but any Nigeria who have the opportunity to live in such area just 3 months already forms an accent ?  his application for British citizenship simply means to me he is not proud been a Nigeria and denying his country.  hope they allow him to play for  England nation team since he is now a  British citizen. hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
