John Obi Mikel has been hailed by his Chelsea teammate and compatriot Victor Moses for helping Nigeria win bronze in the men’s football event at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
Mikel was amazing as he captained the side to four victories and two loses in Brazil.
“I was watching the games,’ Moses reports. ‘Obi was the captain, the leader of the side and he did really well for them. It wasn’t easy for them to go out to Brazil and win a medal so I’m very proud.” Moses said on Chelsea’s website.
“They did their best so to come home with a bronze medal is great and I hope the whole country are proud of them.”
Mikel has now shifted attention to club duties.
