Mikel Obi’s agents clash


Player agents John Shittu and Dan Fletcher on Saturday morning clashed in the lobby of the Mitland Hotel in Utrecht, where the Flying Eagles put up during which Shittu challenged Fletcher’s claims over his mandate to represent Mikel Obi.

Player agents John Shittu and Dan Fletcher on Saturday morning clashed in the lobby of the Mitland Hotel in Utrecht, where the Flying Eagles put up during which Shittu challenged Fletcher’s claims over his mandate to represent Mikel Obi.

Fletcher was openly embarrassed when Shittu challenged him over Mikel, who is presently in a tug-of-war involving top English clubs Manchester United and Chelsea.

“Do you know Mikel? Are you his agent?” Shittu thundered.
“You have caused me all kinds of trouble with your lies.”
Fletcher, all flushed in the full glare of several Nigerian journalists, could barely manage a defence, saying he has not had much contact with the Flying Eagles star.
He also attempted to apologise to Shittu “for all the mess” this has caused him.

Outside the hotel, Fletcher changed his story by telling reporters that even though he has not had contact with the player, he does have a contract with Mikel.

He also argued that he only came to the hotel to see “my player Promise Isaac”.
“I have no business with Mikel,” he said. An angry Mikel was also prevented from coming out of the hotel to challenge Fletcher's claims, team official Waidi Akanni told KICK OFF.
Supporters club boss Rafiu Ladipo will also challenge Fletcher for putting up a representation contract with Mikel which gives the English agent 30 per cent of the player’s earnings.
Fletcher eventually beat a retreat and picked up a taxi to take him to safety, away from the Mitland Hotel.
