Mikel Obi Shortlisted For Stoke City Player For April

Former Super Eagles captain John Obi Mikel has been shortlisted for Stoke City’s Player of the Month for April 2021, according to the official website of the Potters.

The ex-Chelsea star went the distance in all Stoke City games in the Championship in April – five in total.

Michael O’Neill’s side collected five points from a possible eighteen in the division – drawing twice, winning once, and losing three games.

Mikel is up against Wales international Adam Davies, Wales goalkeeper Rhys Norrington-Davies and winger Jacob Brown for the monthly accolade.

Stoke City wrote : “Another player to feature in every game in April, former Nigeria international John Obi Mikel produced a number of solid performances in the heart of midfield.

“The 34-year-old used all of his experience to break up and start play, as well as helping to support the younger players around him.
