Mikel, in a conversation with Darren Lewis, stated, “I’d love to be involved with the Nigeria National Team, and I would love to be a mediator between the hierarchy and the players.”

Expanding on his role, Mikel emphasized, “I would love to be someone who tries to fix the problems from the top, whether it means acting as a mediator between the FA and the players to ensure proper functioning. Success doesn’t solely originate from the pitch; it starts from the top. I still maintain a huge level of respect from the fans and the players themselves.”

The Chelsea legend also disclosed his two greatest players from Africa, citing former Chelsea teammate Didier Drogba and former Ballon d’Or winner George Weah.

John Mikel has confidently predicted Nigeria’s victory in the upcoming tournament scheduled to kick off in Ivory Coast on the 13th of January.

He has backed Victor Osimhen to secure the title of highest goalscorer. Mikel Obi retired from the national team in 2019 after leading the Super Eagles to a third-place finish in Egypt.

He played a pivotal role in providing leadership for young players at that time, including current African footballer of the year, Victor Osimhen, Samuel Chukwueze, and other emerging stars in the team.
