Former Super Eagles midfielder, Mikel Obi was conspicuously missing in Carlos Ancelotti's all-time 11 players that he has managed.
The Nigerian international was part of Ancelotti's Chelsea side that won the Premier League and FA Cup in his first season in the Premier League.
Despite not playing regularly under the Italian tactician, the former Lyn Oslo midfielder shone brightly in the few games that he was selected into the team.
It is, however, amazing that Mikel didn't make Ancelotti's all-time 11 with notable names such as Buffon, Silva, Terry, Cafu, Maldini, Pirlo, Lampard, Zidane, Kaka, Ibrahimovic, and Shevchenko on the list.
