Recent rumour that Chelsea midfielder Mikel Obi was going to walk down the aisle with model Sandra Okagbue was dispelled by them both, but the Nigerian international has opened up to sports journalsit Kayode Tijani that finding a wife is very difficult, and now he’s leaving it in God’s hand.
“I know, normal people don’t go through what I am going through now when it concerns finding a Wife to marry, normal people don’t at all. Believe me it’s so so difficult, very difficult, it’s so so difficult you just have to leave it to God.
“To find someone who truly loves you, there might be someone who really loves me truly for who I am but I may not be aware but maybe you don’t know but you may think she’s one of those people who love you for who you are or what you have, because of your money, but maybe she’s there for you, you never know, you get so confused, now I have decided I will just leave it to God to decide who I get married to.”
Mikel also spoke on his rumoured five Bentleys.
“One thing is I really don’t go into the Nigerian papers, not like I don’t care but he called me, my agent called me, he was in Nigeria and he said to me there’s rumors that I have Bentleys, I am like what, five Bentleys? What am I going to do with five Bentleys? They are all same cars. Five Bentleys, I might have five different colors of them.
“I think it boils down to when you are doing really well, when things are going well for you, you become what people don’t expect you to become, what people don’t expect you to achieve, you know there’s always going to be rumors flying here and there., it all depends on how well you manage yourself though, you curtail yourself from things that are not right for you. I want to play this game for a very long time. I love Chelsea, and I will like to finish my Career here at Chelsea but it depends on what happens, who comes and goes, that’s football, we shall see what the future holds.
Mikel says he disagrees with those who call him the new Jay Jay Okocha as he pointed out that as a great a player as Okocha was, they are two different people.
“When I was coming into the national team, they say, oh, there’s a new Jay Jay Okocha and I say to them there’s going to be only one Jay Jay Okocha and there’s always going to be only one Mikel Obi.
