Middleborogh Fans Brand Mikel As ‘African Zidane’
Super Eagle’s Midfielder, Mikel Obi’s latest stint in English football has started on a very strong note.
The former Chelsea midfielder, who signed for Championship side Middlebrough last month has been in scintillating form for the club, and has not only earned himself a new nickname, but also a new song.
While the official official website of Middlesbrough has described Mikel as the ‘Rolls Royce midfielder’ the fans have composed a new song for him.
“”We’ve got Mikel,
John Obi Mikel,
I just don’t think you understand.
The midfield man, the African Zidane,
Oh we’ve got John Obi Mikel”
Middlesbrough fans sing in awe: 'The African Zidane, we've got John Obi Mikel.'

Mikel joined Middleborogh from China and has been one of the best players since the move.
He has also not played for the Super Eagles since the 2018 World Cup.
