Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho has disclosed that Super Eagles captain, John Mikel Obi is not the perfect number 10 for the team.

Mourinho stated this following Nigeria’s 2-0 loss to Croatia in their opening Group D 2018 World Cup clash on Saturday.

Mourinho who signed Mikel for Chelsea in 2006 and converted him from an attacking midfielder to a defensive midfield, said Nigeria has lost a good defensive midfielder in the person of Mikel.

Speaking as a World Cup pundit on the Russian TV station, RT, Mourinho said, referring to Mikel: “Nigeria lost a good No.6 to get a bad No.10.”

The Eagles will face Iceland on Friday needing a win to keep hope alive.
