- The Chelsea legend has come under attack after sharing fake news on social media
- Mikel was said to have believed Porto gave their players assignment to study his playing style
Former Super Eagles captain John Obi Mikel was said to have sent social media to frenzy after posting a quotes from Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Reuben Neves.
The highly-rated Wolves attacker was quoted in the post saying while "At Porto all midfielders were given DVDs of Mikel to take home and study every day. We used to call him the 'professor of football.'"
However, there was not truth in the comments credited to the 22-year-old star who has scored one Premier League goal in four appearances this campaign.
And the former Nigeria international while reacting to the news said: 'I am honoured,' but did not realised that the news was fake.
He was said to have thought that everyone at the Portuguese club studied his videos - meaning he fell for the fake news shared on social media.
SunSport however report that the Blues fan, who posted the comment said: “The funniest part about this is the fact the accounts I expected to blindly copy and present it as legit news did the exact same thing.”
Meanwhile, a few other Blues fans mocked their legend, as one said: "I hope you realise it’s a fake quote mate." Another said: "Do you realise that this quote is fake. Neves never said this."

Mikel spent over to a decade at the Stamford Bridge - winning three Premier Leagues, one Champions League and one Europa League cup.
He also lifted a few other domestic titles before eventually leaving them in the winter of 2017 to join Chinese League side Tianjin TEDA.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng recently reported that social media was flooded with news that retired Super Eagles captain John Mikel Obi’s marriage with Olga Diyachenko had hit the rocks.
