Mikel Obi And Olga Conroversy
The report added that Olga is not happy with the 32-year-old after he left England for Turkey, adding that the pair relationship has gone sour
Mikel and Olga have two twin daughters, Ava and Mia.
“I can confirm to you that all is not seemingly fine with them. Olga doesn’t like the city and has taken the children back to their base,” the newspaper quoted a source as saying.
“In fact, she warned him against the move to Turkey but he convinced her about it. Now she came visiting and doesn’t like it; the kids do not also like it there in Turkey which could now be a problem for Mikel.
Now Olga has told Mikel that she won’t return to visit him again which means he won’t also see the kids, leaving Mikel with only the chance of seeing his family in December during the Christmas break, a decision which I understand has left him sad and may unsettle him.”
