John Obi Mikel has been reimbursed with the sum of four thousand, six hundred dollars by the federal ministry of youth and sports, the Nigeria Football Federation has confirmed.
The Dream Team six were held to ransom by management of a hotel in Sao Paulo over unpaid bills, but the Chelsea star bailed the team out before they left for Salvador where they defeated Denmark two-nil in the quarter final. In his response, Mikel thanked the ministry while urging them to do more in terms of motivation. Nigeria face Germany in the semifinal of the Olympic Games on Wednesday at the Corinthians Arena.
