Super Eagles really need the experience and intelligence of Captain Mikel John Obi


Super Eagles midfielder, Ogenyi Eddy Onazi has said partnering with former captain Mikel John Obi in the midfield has brought out the best in him, reports.

Onazi, who recently returned to full action after a long term injury that has made him unavailable for selection for the National team since 2019, made this assertion while speaking on the Super Eagles live Instagram session put together by the media team.

“I will say my pairing with Mikel Obi was the best for me. I enjoyed playing alongside him and there is this confidence I had back then and had nothing to worry about,” Onazi said.

The former Lazio man, who recently moved to  Turkish top-flight side Denizlispor, further revealed that he is looking forward to making a full return to the team, noting however that the competition present in the Super Eagles team would make it more interesting.
