John Obi Mikel caught football fans in Lagos unawares after he showed up unannounced to train with kids at Evans Square, Ebute Metta, a suburb of Lagos State.
The former Super Eagles captain wore a perfect disguise as he showed up with his face covered with a white handkerchief and a face cap making him unrecognizable by fans at the training pitch.

Mikel would however remove his disguise which prompted an excited reaction from the kids and everyone around the sandy pitch before having a training session with the kids.

The former Chelsea and Middlesborough star who is back in the country to promote his new program Back to Base could be seen having a great time with the kids.
Mikel who retired from the Super Eagles in 2019 has promised to give back to the local community after he was appointed by the Federal Government of Nigeria as one of its Youth Ambassadors.
