Mikel Obi Announces His Retirement From Super Eagles

Super Eagles captain John Obi Mikel has
bowed out of the Nigerian national team
after the end of the Africa Cup of Nations
(AFCON) in Egypt.
The former Chelsea midfielder, who will be
plying his trade with Trabzonspor in the
Turkish topflight in the new season wrote;
Egypt is a country where I’ve started and
have finished my National career. In 2006 I
played my first official championship for my
Country. 2019 African Cup of Nations marks
my last championship for National Team
with Super Eagles.
My national career started in 2003 under 17
World Cup and I’m grateful for the national
team for placing me on the world arena and
giving me an opportunity to show my skill
and have an incredible National and
International career.
At the age of 32 it’s time for me to retire
from the National team and let the youth
take over, who’ve done an amazing job
securing a bronze medal at AFCON 2019.
Thank you to all my Nigerian supporters and
to my Country for all the trust, support and
love you’ve shown me over the past 15
Mikel out!

we gonna miss u Mikel
