Mikel Obi Changes His Name

it’s really not as it turns out John Obi Mikel is actually called ‘Michael’, but the Nigeria Football Federation incorrectly spelt his name ahead of the Under-17 World Cup in 2003.It was not all bad though as Mikel/Michael preferred his new moniker and stuck with it before joining Chelsea in 2006.

Now Michael, born John Michael Nchekwube Obinna, has officially changed his name to ‘Mikel John Obi’, according to the Standard.
