Things are not currently going on well for Mikel in his union with his partner, Olga who has decided to dump him.
The ex Super Eagles captain moved to Trabzonspor in Turkey last month but the decision is apparently not going well with Olga who has now reportedly told Mikel she will no longer allow him to see the children should he remain in Trabzon.
A source to the family who disclosed this to AOIFootball.com, said categorically that the situation could go really bitter after Olga told Mikel that she will no longer come to Turkey with the children.
“I can confirm to you that all is not seemingly fine with them. Olga doesn’t like the city and has taken the children back to their base. In fact, she warned him against the move to Turkey but he convinced her about it.
Now she came visiting and doesn’t like it; the kids do not also like it there in Turkey which could now be a problem for Mikel.
Olga has told Mikel that she won’t return to visit him again which means he won’t also see the kids, leaving Mikel with only the chance of seeing his family in December during the Christmas break, a decision which I understand has left him sad, and may unsettle him” the source revealed.
The development becomes a worrisome issue for the 32-year-old who also struggled to see his family during his spell with the Chinese club Tianjin Teda and having to fly for hours back to England to see his kids.
The source also expressed fears it may see him struggle in the Turkish league because of his unhappy mood following this development.
It is left to see if Mikel will like to see out his contract with the club.
The former Nigerian player is however expected to be in action later Thursday night when Trabzonspor welcome AEK Athens in the Europa League, holding a 3-1 advantage in their quest to reach the group stages.
