The Sun informs that Mikel called officials of the NFF who hail from the northern part of the country speaking in Hausa language and begging the officials to plead with Coach Sunday Oliseh to forgive him for missing his calls.

Mikel Obi was said to have missed Oliseh’s calls when he visited London to meet with players like Victor Moses, Carl Ikeme to ensure there commitment to the Super Eagles. While Victor Moses replied the Eagles trainer’s calls, Mikel did not and this led to his exclusion from the Super Eagles squad.

In his call with he NFF officials, Mikel allegedly wept on the phone and begged to be recalled to the team as his inactivity in football is stalling his once fledgling career.

According to the Exclusives report, Mikel ‘reckons that his career could be over if he was not in­vited to the national team.’

The NFF however is said to be divided whether to call the one time African footballer of the year runner up.

It would be recalled that Mikel Obi was embroiled in a parenthood controversy. It was reported that the Chelsea midfielder fathered two children after short relationships with two women.

He has a four-year-old son and a one-year-old daughter.
