Former Nigeria captain, John Mikel Obi, said Aribo won’t be a better option when talking about my replacement.
Mikel Obi retired from international week after the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and his no. 10 shirt has been taken by Aribo.
Aribo, player of Rangers in Scotland, who scored in an international friendly against Ukraine.
However, Mikel Obi feels Alex Iwobi will fill his shoes better.
“I like the man who took my number Aribo but many people don’t understand that Alex Iwobi is the player in my role.
“Iwobi started playing that role from the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and I have been impressed with how he has settled in properly.
“We all know he is a good player, so it’s no surprise that he has done well so far,” Mikel Obi told BrilaFM.
