Middlesbrough fans are drooling over Mikel Obi since his sensational transfer to the English Championship side so much so they have nicknamed him a Rolls Royce, Britain’s state-of-the-art car.
Mikel joined ‘Boro on a free after he parted ways with Chinese club Tainjin Teda.
Middlesbrough won 1-0 at Blackburn Rovers with the Super Eagles star playing in the heart of the midfield for the entire duration.
They are fifth and within the promotion playoffs bracket with 54 points from 32 matches.
This has sparked off a flurry of praise from appreciative ‘Boro fans, singing “We’ve got Mikel, John Obi Mikel, I just don’t think you understand, This midfield man, The African Zidane, We’ve got John Obi Mikel.”
