Nigerians in Twitter war over who is the better player between Mikel Obi and Wilfred Ndidi

Nigerians have a long memory! At least in all things football-related.

And, of course, they keep tabs on their favourite (or not so-favourite) players and their exploits in the field of play. And they don’t forget the joys (and pains) of watching their darling players dole out their skills for glory, especially when the players were at their prime.

So, even if age catches up on them or they become a bit rusty with time – which is perfectly normal – Nigerians still remember them when they were a joy to behold despite the ravages of the natural circle.

So, when Twitterer, Oluwatoba Olalekan @IamClassicNaija, decided to run a Twitter poll asking fans to name their favourite defensive midfielder between the duo of former Super Eagles skipper, Mikel Obi, and former national teammate Wilfred Ndidi, fans were not amused, with many likening the comparison to what amounts to equating chalk to cheese.

And from the reactions, it was clear that most of those that responded believed Mikel Obi was a better midfielder than Wilfred Ndidi. Anyway, Mikel is at the twilight of his careers while Ndidi’s is only just starting. We believe it is a little premature to conduct a poll such as this. Time enough to do that in the futue.

Meanwhile, here is a sample of the reactions to the poll… And let’s have your reaction in the comment section as well.

So, for most of the people who responded to the poll, Mikel is a class apart from Wilfred Ndidi even as many recognise that the Nigerian midfielder is skilled. But he is apparently, not yet at the level that Mikel reached during his playing days at Chelsea football club.

Nigerians have declared!
