Mr Mikel shut up there! Is that how to play as a team? Holding the ball for long,slowing the counter attack,or guiding an opponent?

U are a waste!!! Player or I should say midfielder without vision or urgency, u didn't make or create any chance.



In short u don't even have a highlight in that world cup sad

kendrick93: u cnt ask a fish to move on land... mikel isnt a playmaker.. its fans lyk u who needs to evaluate d type of player he is.. u e
are d cause of ur problem

I tend to disagree with you. In modern football, most players can function in more than one position. We saw Phillip Lahm play as a Rb and DM for Germany. Mascherano played as a CB for Barca most of last season. That Mikel was converted to a defensive midfielder at Chelsea doesn't mean he can no longer play as an attack-minded central midfielder. He played well in that role at the Nations Cup and Confederations Cup. He had a bad World Cup period.

Worst No. 10 Nigeria ever had, he should peacefully hand that jersey to Kelechi Iheanacho to avoid further embarrassment.

Dirk Kurt also played four different positions for Holland at the world cup.

Y is everyone criticising mikel wen its d coach dt deserves d criticisms. Y is keshi forcing a defensive midfielder to become a no 10 overnight. Mikel plays very well as a defensive midfielder n shld b left to do jst dt in super eagles. I tink keshi is d one who has failed to give us a no 10 n shld be fired.
Keshi is d one dt is a poor coach n ve failed to discover a no 10 for super eagles in over 3 yrs

lahm and mascherano are w/class so ur point is stupid
Re: Mikel Defends His World Cup Performance by JurassicPark: 5:19pm On Jul 30, 2014
Mikel, you would have kept quiet nah..#haba

If your poor performance at the world cup was about "playing for the team" abeg no play for the team again

U can play against the team so we know the difference
Re: Mikel Defends His World Cup Performance by Olamilekan08(m): 5:31pm On Jul 30, 2014
Abeg make una leave my Mikel alone o. U pple dey talk say he slow, but atleast we know say he fast past an old snail, na btw hm and young snails we no go know who fast past.. But trust me he go improve, maybe abit faster than tortoise.
Re: Mikel Defends His World Cup Performance by Ephemmm: 6:05pm On Jul 30, 2014
mygee33: He would have been better as goal keeper


How are you sure he wouldn't always be standing at the back of goal line?
Re: Mikel Defends His World Cup Performance by Ephemmm: 6:08pm On Jul 30, 2014
The only mid-fielder without a short on target during the 2014 World Cup campaigne, I hail thee: your sluggishness, uncreativity, backwardness and laziness were second to none.

Re: Mikel Defends His World Cup Performance by ShyDare(m): 6:51pm On Jul 30, 2014
Maycher: He used to be a good player. Dunno what really happened to him.
he is just suddenly lackadaisical. When keshi drops him for several months he will sit up. Wish him well in his club career, hope he rediscovers his form. We should find another 10 and leave him out of the super eagles.
Re: Mikel Defends His World Cup Performance by davidam(m): 8:11pm On Jul 30, 2014
He will have to defend himself anyway even if he was the worst player. We all knew he was zero throughout the tournament.
Re: Mikel Defends His World Cup Performance by holuwheaphemmy(m): 8:51pm On Jul 30, 2014
Was Mikelis Obilis at the world cup?!
Re: Mikel Defends His World Cup Performance by Nobody: 9:01pm On Jul 30, 2014
I blame Keshi for not taking a substitute

If mikel was removed at halftime against Argentina and then benched against France he would have got the message

Don't worry, i'm sure Mourinho bought you a good brand new seat belt! You'll need it on the bench this season if you're lucky not to be offloaded to the kind of team you belong. It'll help if you go watch the video of the world cup matches and compare yourself to your foreign contemporaries, you'll know how much of a flop you were.

I wonder why some people are making meaningless defence of his performance in this world cup. He was very poor,end of discussion. Whether as a defensive midfielder or creative one,he surely showed a glaring lack of confidence on the ball.
