Super Eagles Spokesman Finally Opens Up On Mikel Obi’s Retirement



The Media Officer of the Super Eagles, Toyin Ibitoye, has insisted that John Mikel Obi has not retired from international football.

Mikel Obi, who is the captain of the Nigerian national team, has not featured since the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

He was not named in Gernot Rohr’s 23-man squad to take on South Africa next month.

“Mikel has not retired from international football.

“He remains the captain of the national team.

“But the reality of it is that he is not getting any younger. And the positive (from this) is that other players now have a chance to step up in his absence,” Ibitoye told Greetings FM Abuja.
