Sport News: Mikel Obi Changed His Name Publicly

Nigeria F.F. / Chelsea F.C. Mikel Obi, has finally had enough of people getting his actual name wrong.
That is why the Chelsea stalwart who was was born John Michael Nchekwube Obinna (the son of Michael Obi) in 1987, but a mistake in 2003 changed things for the midfielder. has just officially changed his name… to Mikel John Obi.

For starters, it turns out that he was never actually called 'Mikel'. The Guus Hiddink favourite was born John Michael Nchekwube Obinna - 'Mikel' only became a thing when the Nigerian FA mistakenly used Mikel instead of Michael on his submission form during the registration process for the 2003 Fifa Under-17 World Championships. So much so, that despite the fact it's not actually his name, he's been happy to be called John Obi
Mikel ever since he joined Chelsea in 2006.

It seems, he has now officially changed his name
to… Mikel John Obi.
