Onazi speaks on rumoured rift with Skipper, Mikel

Super Eagles vice-captain, Ogenyi Onazi has once again dismissed reports of him having any rift with his team captain, John Mikel Obi.


Speaking to Brila FM on Monday morning, the former SS Lazio star said there’s no misunderstanding between him and the former Chelsea midfielder.


The purported rift has earlier been cleared by the NFF and team’s coordinator, Patrick Pascal who later handed over the Phone to Ogenyi Onazi for him to clear the air once more.


“Mikel is a leader in whom I look up to,” says Onazi


“There’s no way I’d be having a rift or issues with someone who inspires myself and every other member of the team”


“I believe the rumour is just a means to cause us distractions”


Onazi was dropped in Eagles’ most recent friendly game vs The Czech Republic after dropping a below-par performance in the Pre-world Cup game against England.
