The former Norway’s Lyn Oslo FC player told Kayode Tijani, who is a seasoned sport journalist, in a recent interview that his major problem is getting who really loves him for who he is and not for what he has or has achieved as a footballer.
“I know normal people do not go through what I am going through now when it concerns finding a wife to marry, normal people don’t at all,” he said.
Mikel then confessed that, “believe me, it’s so difficult, very difficult [getting a wife]. You just have to leave it to God to find someone who truly loves you.
“There might be someone who truly loves me for who I am but I may not be aware [of the person] but maybe [because] you don’t know or think she is one of those people that loves you for who you are or what you have, because of your money, or maybe she is [just] there for you, you never know, you get so confused.
“Now, I have decided I will just leave it to God to decide who I get married to.”
