Mikel dumped by mother of his daughters over Turkey move - Report

All may not be well with Nigerian midfielder John Obi Mikel and the mother of his twin daughters Olga Diyachenko who has threatened to dump the former Chelsea star.

The cause for the reported trouble was believed to be Mikel's move to Turkish Super Lig club Trabzonspor.

Mikel moved to Trabzonspor in July after captaining Nigeria to win bronze medal at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

A very close source to the family who revealed to AOIFootball.com that the situation could go really sour after Olga told Mikel that she will no longer come to Turkey with her 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.

“Now 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.

Mikel may not be in his right state of mind, byt the midfielder is expected to be in action on Thursday night when Trabzonspor welcome AEK Athens in the Europa League, holding a 3-1 advantage in their quest to reach the group stages.
