Super Eagles coach, Sunday Oliseh, has expressed his delight following Mikel Obi’s first start of the season for Chelsea in Saturday’s 3-1 Premier League defeat against Everton at Goodison Park.
Mikel was dropped from the Super Eagles squad that took on Tanzania and Niger Republic during the international break after he was accused by Oliseh of not returning the coach’s phone calls.
Oliseh wrote on his Twitter handle that he is happy that the midfielder got a starting shirt.
“Happy for John Obi Mikel as he starts for Chelsea.”
Since the start of the new season, Mikel has only featured in a handful of games for the EPL champions.
