CSKA Moscow star, Ahmed Musa, has announced Chelsea midfielder, John Mikel Obi, as the new captain of the Super Eagles.
Mikel was widely tipped to take over from Vincent Enyeama who quit the national team following fallout with former Super Eagles’ coach Sunday Oliseh, but Musa was handed the armband instead.
“I’m no longer the Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi is the Super Eagles captain,” Musa said to ovation from the media.
Mikel made his Nigeria debut 10 years ago described Musa as a “wonderful professional”. “It takes a man to come out to do what he did,” he said.
