Nigerian International Mikel Obi has countered news that he may not be featuring in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations which will be starting January 19th due to injury which he sustained during a club game.

The Chelsea player suffered a knee injury in his club game against Norwich City which confined the midfielder to the reserve sit of the Stamford bridge club in their last three games but Mikel has been vigorously involved in the Super Eagles training going on in a training camp in Faro, Portugal, on Sunday.

According Mikel, he had a knock but he is very fit now, so no fears about injury as he is ready for the Nations cup.

“I’m okay. I had a knock two weeks ago and was told to rest for some time, but now I am fit and I actually started training two days ago with the Chelsea first team,” said Mikel.

“So there should be no fears about any injury. I’m ready for the Nations Cup.”
