Former Super Eagles coach, Samson Siasia, has revealed that Mikel Obi is stubborn.

Siasia disclosed this during a podcast with ex-international Emmanuel Babayaro and journalist Mathew Edafe over the weekend.

According to him, he finds it challenging to tolerate footballers who are stubborn.

“Mikel is a little bit out of my list; he is stubborn. I can not tolerate people like that much. The only good thing he did was that he came and played very well in the Olympics. He acted as a captain,” Siasia, a former Super Eagles striker, said.

He won Olympic silver and bronze medals while in charge of the U-23 team in 2008 and 2016, respectively.

Recall that the 56-year-old was appointed Super Eagles coach in 2010 and was in charge for one year before his reappointment in 2016.
