Mikel leads Eagles flight to Afcon



Chelsea midfielder, John Mikel Obi has declared himself fit for the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

Mikel, currently in the Faro, Portugal camp of the Super Eagles has missed out on recent games for Chelsea in the Barclays English Premier League and the FA Cup.

The former FC Lyn-Oslo man has however moved to allay fears about his fitness ahead of Nigeria’s participation at the Afcon.

“Bros, I am okay,” Mikel said on Sunday.

Mikel was not listed by the Chelsea interim manager, Rafa Benitez for Saturday’s FA Cup third round win at Southampton but Mikel claimed his absence had nothing to do with his current state of health.

“No, I had a knock two weeks ago and was told to rest for sometimes, but now am fit and I actually started training two days ago with the Chelsea first team.

“So there are no fears about any injury. I’m ready for the Nations Cup,” he said.
