VIDEO: MIDDLESBROUGH FANS HAIL MIKEL OBI

Last Sunday, it was just Mikel Obi’s third appearance for the English Championship side, Midddlesbrough, but the Nigerian has becoming a cult hero among the fans.

In Sunday’s match, Mikel, playing the entire duration of the match, inspired the club to a 1-0 away win against Blackburn as the club continue the march for a possible Premiership slot next season.

Fans were very impressive of Mikel Obi’s performance that they equated him with Zinedine Zidane in his playing days. He is now tagged the ‘African Zidane”.
