Former Super Eagles midfielder and captain, John Mikel Obi was tricked by a fake instagram user, who impersonated Wolves star, Reuben Neves.
The alleged ‘quote’ from the Portuguese midfielder read: “Back in Porto, we were given DVD’s of John Obi Mikel to take home and study everyday. We used to call him the professor of football.”
Mikel harmlessly uploaded the image of the quote onto his official Instagram with the caption ‘I am honoured’.
