Mikel Breaks Down In Tears After Thousands Of Racial Abuses

Nigerian footballer John Obi Mikel broke down in tears while answering questions from the press about the racial abuses reigned on himself and his family

Trabzonspor defeated Fenerbache 2-1 in a Turkish Super Lig match and fans verbally attacked the midfielder, mother of his children Olga Diyachenko and his four-year-old twin daughters.

In an emotional interview, the former Chelsea star confirmed thousands of messages were sent to him personally and his partner with threats to his daughters.

Mikel told Turkish TV: “A lot has been said about this – the issue of racism but since I’ve been here, my team and colleagues at Trabzonspor have been very nice to me, there’s not been any issue.”
