John Mikel Obi the Nigerian Super Eagles Captian has escaped a plane crash at his newly signed club Middlesbrough.
Mikel Obi and his teammates at Middlesbrough were supposed to fly from Newport county but the club had to call off the flight because the plane was grounded due to engine failure.
The flight was supposed to take the team to their next league fixture.
They were forced to quit the flight and use the team bus as the fault was noticed after the plane had been cleared to take on the Cardiff Airport runway.
We will recall that the world is still morning Emiliano Sala who died in a plane crash.
