Amokachi, who won the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations with Nigeria considers Mikel to be the country’s standout player based on his achievements.
”Mikel is the greatest player,’’ Amokachi said on Brila FM’s Show “The Bull’s Pit”.
‘‘He has won everything that a player can hope to; the Champions League, Europa, AFCON in 2013 and he also captained the national team.
‘‘As a footballer, your laurels count and that will surely count for Mikel because nobody has won that much in Nigerian football.’’
