“Don’t Take Mikel To AFCON 2019” – Segun Odegbami Advices Rohr

A former Super Eagles player, Segun Odegbami, has told manager of the Nigerian senior team not to take Mikel Obi to AFCON 2019.

Segun Odegbami who noted that Mikel Obi has been absent from the Nigerian National team since Nigeria’s last group stage game against Argentina at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, added that he should not be taken to AFCON 2019 because he is not the player he was.

He told ThisDay; “Recall Mikel? History is against such decision. Mikel is not the player he once was. We have seen his best and it cannot be recreated or better. What did it fetch?”

Odegbami added that new players cannot emerge if the old players do not retire, sighting himself as an example, after he took over from Baba Otu Mohammed after he (Otu) had just been named Africa’s best right-winger but was disappointing in a few games.
