Mikel Obi kicked against the introduction of Ramon Azeez in place of the injured Ogenyi Onazi during the round of 16 match against France, a top team official has specially told AfricanFootball.com

Almeria midfielder Azeez was preparing to come in for the injured Onazi, when within moments coach Stephen Keshi asked Reuben Gabriel to come in instead for the Lazio youngster.

“Mikel made it very clear to Keshi that he did not wish for Ramon to play alongside him in the midfield and that was why Azeez was asked to sit down and in his place Reuben was brought in,” a top team official informed AfricanFootball.com

The player power Mikel wielded in the Super Eagles was such that coach Keshi asked the midfielder if he wanted to be replaced during the Bosnia-Herzegovina match after he appeared to tire.

“Should it be the player or the coach who should effect a substitution?” asked a baffled top official.

This report can't be true. Knowing Keshi for what he is, he won't accept that from any of his players. So please, stop spreading false reports

All these people breaking their heads because of unverified reports. In the end, we're only trying to look for a scapegoat to hang our defeat to France on. It is time to take our lessons home, go back and restructure. We already have a team, all we need is more of technical input, replacing the tired legs and making the entire squad more competitive!!!

Il est mauvais pour Mikel de le faire. Et je pense que l'équipe technique s'est trompé en acceptant la demande Mikel. Gabriel et Mikel performance dans ce match était nul. Ramon Azeez aurait fait mieux que Gabriel.

It is wrong for Mikel to do that. And l think the technical crew got it wrong by accepting Mikel request. Gabriel and Mikel performance in that match was zero. Ramon Azeez would have performed better than Gabriel.

he is mad for saying that...you flop
