John Mikel Obi out, Victor Moses doubtful for Sierra Leone game

Posted: 6 February 2011 Time: 09:48

John Mikel Obi is not expected to play any part in Wednesday's friendly against Sierra Leone while the arrival of Wigan's Victor Moses is in doubt. 

Officials told KickOffNigeria.com that Mikel and the Chelsea medical staff informed Samson Siasia that the midfielder would be unable to train or play on artificial turf as a result of his recent surgery.   Mikel suffered medial ligament damage when he was caught by Robin van Persie in a nasty late challenge during Chelsea's defeat to Arsenal in December.   The Nigerian has only just returned to first team football after undergoing surgery and spending over four weeks on the sidelines "They told the coach that if he plays on artificial turf now, it could cause a swelling in the knee where he had surgery," an official said. "But he is still expected to be in camp and meet up with the rest of the squad."   That however, is not the case with Wigan's Moses, who is said to be developing cold feet "His advisers called to say that maybe this is not the right time for him yet, as it would be better for him to focus on establishing himself at club level."   Officials remain hopeful that the youngster will join up with the rest of the team, although those expectations are derived more from optimism than certainty.

I have learned so far, that Onouha, V Moses, Amoebi are not in our long term planning. I have learn't that Mikel Obi is not commited to Nigeria, is first choice is Chelsea. We need to plan accordingly, find good players that can bench him or make him irrelevant to the squad.

@21guns or CALIBA, You animal have started again abi? Now you are looking for trouble, you have to come to our site to insult us again and if we begin to rain curses on your useless dumb skull and overage team coupled with your prostitute girls and over-aged animals you will be crying. Nigeria is about to decolonise ghana. 40% of all the investments in ghana are owned by Nigerians including the sponsor of your league, (Glo) yet you are not grateful. Animal, shoe shiner, cobbler, ingrate, bastard.
