The African Zidane! Middlesbrough Fans sing John Mikel Obi's Praises

Nigeria’s first team captain, John Mikel Obi is fast becoming an idol in his current team Middlesbrough where he plies his trade in the EFL Championship, England’s second-tier league.

Mikel who just recently joined Middlesbrough on a 6-month contract in the January transfer window after his contract with Chinese side Tianjin TEDA was terminated is widely regarded as a Chelsea FC legend having played 249 games with 11 major trophies in 11 years for the top English Premier League side.

Following his impressive showing at Blackburn Rovers over the weekend, Middlesbrough fans have begun chanting the praises of the Nigerian star even dubbing him the “African Zidane” with chants of “We’ve got Mikel” at the games and even after.
