Super Eagles Coach, Gernot Rohr has insisted that he is not deterred if Mikel Obi decides to pick a Chinese club ahead of other European football clubs.
The German born Coach noted that being an experienced player, Mikel knows what is best for him.
Rohr stated: “If he decides to choose the money of China, then we must respect that.
“If he goes to China and is playing well, he will be invited to the Super Eagles.
“I prefer Mikel stays in Europe and play in an European team.
“When I was in London two weeks ago, we spoke about that. But Mikel is an experienced and intelligent player and he knows what to do,” Rohr said.
