MIkel Obi with his Russian girlfriend
Super Eagles midfielder John Mikel Obi, has denied reports that he has proposed to his Russian girlfriend, Olga Diyachenko.
In an exclusive interview with Nigerian journalist, Colin Udoh, the Chelsea player said it he will announce it publicly if when it finally happens.
“Yes, she is my girlfriend, but I have not proposed to her. If that happens, it will not be hidden and everyone will know,” Mikel said.
He also warned Nigerian girls to leave her alone, as they had already started insulting her on social media.
“I’m begging Nigerian girls to please leave her alone. Some Nigerian girls have already been attacking her (on social media) since this fake story came out.”
The 27-year-old is his camp with the national team, ahead of this weekend’s game against Congo in Calabar.
