Mikel Obi knows fate on Friday


Nigerian teenage sensation John Mikel Obi will know on Friday whether he will have to return to Lyn Oslo and honour his contract or continue to wait until a final decision is made by world football governing body Fifa.

Nigerian teenage sensation John Mikel Obi will know on Friday whether he will have to return to Lyn Oslo and honour his contract or continue to wait until a final decision is made by world football governing body Fifa.

Fifaís Dispute Resolution Committee met early this month, and one of the issues that came up for discussion was Mikelís contract situation with the Norwegian club.
