The official Twitter handle of Middlesborough FC calls him “A Rolls-Royce of a Midfielder”.

The song they composed for him goes thus:
“We’ve got Mikel,

John Obi Mikel, I just don’t think you understand.

The midfield man, the African Zidane,

Oh, we’ve got John Obi Mikel” #UTB

God I love this guy”

Mikel the 31 years old Super Eagles Captain who moved from Tianjin TEDA the China side to Middlesborough FC  earlier this year on a 6 months contract has since been displaying incredible performance and has gained new form.

Before his move to England, John Obi Mikel had a lot of options but choose Middlesborough FC.
