Former Super Eagles left back Ifeanyi Udeze has expressed fears about the continued absence of Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi from Nigeria’s squad.
Mikel was missing in Nigeria’s 3-0 win over Seychelles on September 8 in their Matchday 2 game away in Victoria.
Udeze expressed his mind on Brila FM on Tuesday.
“He (Mikel) seems to prefer the games he plays now for Nigeria,” Udeze opined.
“If he wants to go Moses way, just do it. He is trying to retire gradually that’s why he is choosing games to play.
Udeze insisted that is bad precedence to the other players in the Eagles fold.
“For me, its not a good example for the other players who will start having problems with the coach and it could divide the house for a team hoping to qualify and hopes to halt their absence at the AFCON.
”Mikel could have come around although if he was in the 18 and is not dressed, that means he has denied a player in the team a space, and chance to play,” the former West Bromwich Albion defender concluded.
