Nigerians no matter what, will always prove to you that they are very difficult (in a good way though) please, especially when you have once given them a good reason not to trust you. This is clearly the situation of the captain of the Nigerian Super Eagles John Obi Mikel and teammates have found themselves, after their first game defeat to Croatia in the on-going Russia 2018 FIFA world cup.

After he was lambasted on social media for a post about giving out his jersey for a competition immediately after the defeat against Croatia, and blaming him for not showing leadership as a captain for the woeful performance of his team, John Obi Mik in a press conference said he will be willing to sacrifice a position in order for the team to continue to win games. He said he will welcome any role given to him as long as it is in the interest of the team. He said:

I am the captain of this team. If I have to sacrifice for this team to progress, I will. If I have to sacrifice a position go play wherever, I will do that for this team to win games.

But Nigerians are not having none of it, as they quickly reminded Mikel on what he should do. See some of the comments:

joze__phSaudade quando o Okocha vestia a 10

jangospherePlease do. Your coach @josemourinho.utd said Nigeria has traded a good number 6 for a not good number 10. Clearly you have to play 6 to be your best.


amaka_abaraWe love you all. ?

tonero1979Tell d coach to use Kelechi and pull out selfish ighalo then play iwobi from d middle not wings. These two guys have confident to face defenders

jerrynayami_officialno be lie

djmikeystarWhen did he say all this @ng_supereagles ?????

to45_17You can sacrifice yourself in the bench. Respectfully

mayjorhYou don’t even have sacrifice anything. Just play the position we all know Mourinho turned you to and you’ve been known to play in, for more than a decade now which is DEFENSIVE MIDFIELD. Period!

don_aisosaI don’t believe in TALK BUT ACTION.. LAZY SUPER CHICKEN ????

ckrazy7Too late @humbledove_21

wood.jackie2018Sacrifice number 10 ????

ie.11_Then do the right thing and bench yourself get iwobi at cam Musa left Moses Right and Iheanacho up front

slekky4Nigerians are so myopic. Everyone is now a coach. Mikel always proves his critics wrong. 10/12 Years in Chelsea all the sticks he received from fans media, that didn’t stop him being among Chelsea’s great. He’s been an humble servant. And I wish you goodluck tomorrow and the entire squad. ??

itz_emmanuel_fitnessI’m just passing by and waiting for tomorrow ?‍♀️
