John Obi Mikel Posts Fake Quote From Ruben Nevas On His Instagram Page

John Obi Mikel Posts Fake Quote From Ruben Nevas On His Instagram Page

Former Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel was "honoured" by the kind words of Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves - it's just a shame his quotes were fake.

The 32-year-old, who spent 11 years at Stamford Bridge between 2006 and 2017, took to Instagram on Friday morning to reveal his delight at the graphic.

It read: "Back in Porto, we were given DVD's of John Obi Mikel to take home and study everyday. We used to call him the professor of football."

Don't get me wrong. Mikel enjoyed a relatively successful spell at Chelsea, winning two Premier League titles, four FA Cups and two League Cups.

Not to mention 'that' famous Champions League win after against Bayern Munich in 2011/12, where Didier Drogba scored the winning penalty.

But did he really believe that young and upcoming players at FC Porto were given footage of his performances to analyse? Apparently so.

Neves, who became the youngest captain in Champions League history in 2015, when he led his side out against Maccabi Tel Aviv, aged 18 years and 221 days, has become a key member of Wolves' Premier League squad since his move in 2017.

And he might want to thank John Obi Mikel for his success, according to these hilarious quotes.

It certainly received plenty of laughs on social media.
