Onazi however told www.brila.net he never had any problem with his former Captain, he maintained that all they have for one another is mutual respect.

“But sometimes when you are in a team, there must be misunderstanding on the pitch, but everything will be settled in the dressing room.”
“I had a very bad game against England in London, then everyone started talking about it and the list for the world cup was not even out yet.
“It was just a distraction on the team, but for the record, I never have a problem with Mikel, although we later make a video and laughed off everything.” He told www.naijaodds.com.
