World Cup: Rift Between Mikel and Onazi Divides Eagles

By  | 

Super Eagles skipper, John Obi Mikel, and his vice captain, Ogenyi Onazi, are on a collision course in camp ahead of the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup, Sun is reporting.

According to a camp source, both players are no longer on talking terms and the tussle for leadership is distracting other players in camp.

“If we must do well in Russia, the NFF must ensure they resolve the wrangling between Mikel and Onazi. Both players I can confirm are not in talking terms and this could cost the team at the World Cup.

As we speak, the tussle is a big distraction for the team. Some players have also pitched their tents with either Mikel or Onazi in the struggle. Though, the reason for tussle is not known yet but some people felt it was due Onazi’s insistence on not taking orders from Mikel,” the source revealed.
