Chelsea Star Mikel Obi Announced As New Super Eagles Captain

Chelsea star Mikel Obi has been announced as the new Super Eagles captain after Ahmed Musa relinquished the position on Thursday, saying this was to clear "a mix-up".




"Something happened before I was made the captain of the Super Eagles. There was a mix-up," Musa told reporters at the pre- match press conference to the 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifier in Kaduna.

"But right now, we have a new administration. Mikel is my senior and a big brother. So, Mikel is the captain, not me." He then announced: “I want to announce now that from today, John Obi Mikel is our new captain.”

Mikel described Musa as a "wonderful professional", commending his courage to surrender the captaincy to him.
"I want to thank Ahmed Musa for being a wonderful professional," he said.
"It takes a man to come out and do what Ahmed Musa has done today. So, I commend him a lot for doing that."
Mikel will now lead Nigeria in Friday's crucial 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Egypt in the northern city of Kaduna.

CSKA Moscow forward Musa was last year named the country's skipper by former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh, instead of vice-captain Mikel following the retirement of Vincent Enyeama from international football.

The 28-year-old Mikel made his full international debut in 2005, five years before 23-year-old Musa.
