Mikel Obi has been declared as the new captain of the Super Eagles, Nigeria’s National Football group.
This declaration was made by CSKA Moscow winger, Ahmed Musa, at the pre-match public interview to the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier against the Pharaohs of Egypt in Kaduna, where he gave the Chelsea midfielder the chief’s band.
Musa said, “I need to declare now that from today, John Obi Mikel is our new captain.”
Addressing columnists present at the gathering, the midfielder recognized the way that it was an “immense honour” to be given the position of captain and expressed gratitude toward Musa for the open door.
“I need to say thanks to Ahmed Musa for being a brilliant expert. It takes a man to turn out and do what he has done today. I recognize him a ton,” Mikel said.
