Mikel wants to play at Rio Olympics

Chelsea star Mikel Obi has expressed his desire to feature at next year’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, as one of three over-aged players. The 28-year-old midfielder has won almost every major trophy at stake including the UEFA Champions League and English Premier League, but has missed out on playing at the Olympics, AfricanFootball.com reports. Incidentally, it was Coach Samson Siasia that left him out from the 2008 Olympics after he stayed away from the competition qualifiers. “He has made it clear he wishes to play at the Rio Olympics,’ a top official of the Nigeria Football Federation told AfricanFootball.com. “But it is left for the coach to pick the overage players he will take along to Brazil next year.” Nation reportage.
