Mikel must abandon his defensive style — Nwosu by JerryB: 2:1 pm On 8 Aug 2016
Exinternational, Heny Nwosu says Super
Eagles midfielder, John Mikel Obi can truly
achieve his potentials if he plays from the
attacking line rather than playing as a
defensive player.
Mikel was at his best mettle at the just
concluded Rio Olympic Games where he
helped the Nigeria’s U-23 team claim Bronze
medal after beating Honduras 3-2 in the
third place match on Saturday. His
contributions in terms of passes and creating
chances for his teammates to score was one
of the major highlights of Mikel’s
outstanding display in Rio.
Despite been used as a defensive midfielder
at Chelsea since joining the team in 2006,
the 1980 Africa Cup of Nations winner,
revealed to soccernet.com.ng exclusively that
the former Lyn Oslo star should be deployed
to the attack in the senior national team.
“I am really impressed with Mikel’s
performance at the Rio Olympic Games
where Nigeria finished third in the Men’s
football of the event. He showed that he’s a
player that can play from the attacking line
not just for the national team but also for
Chelsea,” said Nwosu
“He must abandon his defensive style of play
because it has limited his chances of
showing what he’s made of as a player.
Regardless of what he has achieved for
Chelsea in the Premier League as still believe
that there is more to him than just shielding
the defenders of possession of the ball.
“I saw Mikel in 2005 during the FIFA World
Youth Championship and I said to myself
that this is a great talent for Nigeria and
another Henry Nwosu. But after that
competition, he joined Chelsea and was not
the same Mikel.He was no longer
enterprising and advancing and I concluded
that Mikel can’t be the No 10 player that we
know,” he said.
