John Mikel Obi, a former midfielder of the Super Eagles, has disclosed that he was always scared to play against Ivory Coast legend, Didier Drogba.
Recall that Mikel Obi and Drogba had played together at Chelsea in the Premier League and got many titles together.
However, they faced each other a few times at the international level and one of which happened at the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
In a video shared on CAF’s online social media, Mikel Obi revealed that he was scared of Drogba because the striker is a great goal scorer.
“Obviously, the player I never wanted to meet, that I was lucky I didn’t meet quite a lot, was Didier Drogba. You know, I was always scared of meeting him. Because I knew at some point in the game he would score,” he said.
