Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi has debunked reports that he is being punished by Premier League club Chelsea FC for playing for Nigeria at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games. In a statement issued on Sunday, Mikel pointed out that the comments made by Nigeria’s chief coach, Gernot Rohr were mistranslated and taken out of context by the media. Rohr had claimed that the 29-year-old footballer is being punished by Chelsea coach, Antonio Conte because he had left pre-season camp to play at the Olympics. Read his statement below:
