Mikel who plays as defensive midfielder, lashed out as Siasia, who plays him often as a central defender.
While speaking with Africanfootball.com, he said “I did not like the position I was played in the national team,” “...For 90% of the trainings and games I did for the team, I played in central defence.”
Mikel, will be seen in Vitoria Setubal shirt this season after joining on loan from FC Porto.
